Dr. Hawes's primary interests are in human papillomavirus (HPV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). His current research is conducted in Seattle and Senegal, West Africa and concerns the role of HIV, HPV and other sexually transmitted infections in the natural history of cervical neoplasia and cancer, as well as the study of biomarkers for various cancers including cancer of the cervix, anus, lung, breast, and skin. He is also interested in Alzheimer's disease.
