The funds will benefit the Cervical Dysplasia Center at the Kimmel Cancer Center. Directed by Connie Trimble, M.D., one of few specialists in the country who is board-certified in both obstetrics/gynecology and pathology, the Center aims to diagnose and manage any abnormal changes to the cervix with the goal of preventing cervical cancer. Researchers affiliated with the Center are studying and developing immune therapies, including vaccines, to treat HPV disease of the lower genital tract.
