Christine received her PhD from Oregon Health Sciences University, focusing on Neisseria gonorrhoeae - host cell interactions. She joined the Campos Lab in 2011 and has been working hard to understand how minor capsid protein L2 translocates the HPV genome across limiting membranes after viral entry. She enjoys tennis and spending time with her husband Scott and daughter Penelope in her free time.
