University of Texas School of Dentistry Professor Emerita Karen Adler Storthz, PhD, has been featured on Page 19 of The Pursuit, the alumni magazine of Louisiana State University’s College of Science, in an article about her research collaboration with another LSU alumnus, Dr. Erich Sturgis, professor of surgery at UT M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
The two are working together to further HPV (human papilloma virus) research by showing the possible genetic and epigenetic factors that predispose an individual to develop HPV-associated cancers of the oropharynx, or middle part of the throat.
Storthz, who retired in 2010, is a former associate dean for research at UTSD and remains on the faculty in the Department of Diagnostic and Biomedical Sciences. She was named professor emerita in 2011.
