*Participants will learn the burden and importance of viral infections to major skin cancers and the importance of risk factors, such as immune suppression, in viral cancer development

*Participants will learn about new technologies used to discover cancer viruses

Dr. Yuan Chang is a Distinguished Professor of Pathology in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and a member of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI). She earned her undergraduate degree at Stanford University and her medical degree at the University of Utah. In 1993, following completion of an anatomic pathology residency at the University of California, San Francisco, (during which she helped to establish Helicobacter pylori as a cause for stomach cancer) and a neuropathology fellowship at Stanford University, she joined the faculty at the Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons. In 1994, Dr. Chang co-discovered Kaposi’s sarcoma associated herpesvirus (KSHV), also called human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8), with Dr. Moore. In 2002, she moved to the University of Pittsburgh where the Chang-Moore laboratory identified the most recently discovered human tumor virus, Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCV), the causative agent for the majority of Merkel cell carcinomas. The laboratory subsequently used one of the MCV oncoproteins to uncover a new pathway by which cancer cells regulate protein synthesis. In addition to the US National Academy of Sciences, Dr. Chang is an elected member of the American Academy of Microbiology, the American Society of Clinical Investigation and the Association of American Physicians.

Dr. Moore is a Distinguished Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and Director of the Cancer Virology Program at UPCI. He obtained his undergraduate degree from Westminster College in Utah. After completing graduate work in biophysical chemistry at Stanford University and earning a medical degree from the University of Utah, he joined the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to train as an Epidemic Intelligence Service officer. During this period he developed molecular characterization methods for meningococcal meningitis clones responsible for African pandemics and established refugee mortality surveillance during the Somalian civil war. Dr. Moore completed a preventive medicine residency after an AIDS fellowship at UCSF and received an MPH from the University of California, Berkeley, thereafter being appointed as Deputy Commissioner/City Epidemiologist of the New York City Health Department. In 1993, he joined the faculty of the Columbia University School of Public Health as an Assistant Professor where he and Yuan Chang discovered KSHV. He was promoted to Full Professor in 1998. He joined the University of Pittsburgh in 2002 where he co-discovered MCV as a cause for Merkel cell carcinoma with Dr. Chang. Dr. Moore is also an elected member of the US National Academy of Sciences, American Academy of Microbiology, the American Society of Clinical Investigation and the Association of American Physicians.
