Dr. Moscicki's work since has focused on HPV and cervical cancer. Dr. Moscicki has been the PI of a natural history study of HPV in adolescents and young women since 1990, one of the longest running cohort studies of HPV. In addition to her Adolescent Medicine, STI epidemiology and virology training, Dr. Moscicki studied the immunologic responses to HPV. Her studies now incorporate immune studies of HPV in the field by incorporating these types of complex studies into her longitudinal study of women infected with HPV. She now serves on numerous NIH and national committees, including the Society for Adolescent Medicine, the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology, and the American Cancer Society.
