The Ozbun Research Laboratory is a basic-to-translational science research team, endeavoring to create a collegial and interdependent atmosphere for developing scientific independence and critical thinking for students, post-docs, and staff.
We are committed to making significant and timely strides in understanding how human papillomaviruses cause infections that can progress to malignancies.
We approach scientific questions with passion and perseverance, striving for scientific excellence. We believe that we are part of a bigger world-wide scientific team, and that no one need gain from another’s losses or lose when another wins.
We are part of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, Department of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology, the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center -- a National Cancer Institute-Designated Comprehensive Center and the Official Cancer Center of the State of New Mexico, and The Center for Infection and Immunity.
We interact with other UNM Health Sciences Center Laboratories that share common interests in Virology, Signaling, Intracellular Trafficking, and Cancer Biology. See our collaborators.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
"We must not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time." - T.S. Eliot
