Dr. Winer's research interests are in the epidemiology and prevention of human papillomavirus (HPV) infections and HPV-related cancers. Her current projects focus on the epidemiology and natural history of HPV infections in populations of young and mid-adult women and the use of self-collected vaginal specimens for HPV testing as an adjunct to cervical cancer screening, particularly in underscreened populations.
Dr. Winer currently co-teaches EPI 510 "Epidemiologic Data Analysis" during Winter Quarter and co-directs GH 560 "Principles of STD/HIV Research" during Summer Quarter.
