Anna R. Giuliano, PhD, is the founding director of the Center for Infection Research in Cancer (CIRC) at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. She received her doctorate from Tufts University, continuing her studies at the University of Arizona as a National Cancer Prevention and Etiology Fellow. Dr. Giuliano was the recipient of an National Cancer Institute Preventive Oncology Career Development Award.
Dr Giuliano’s career had its inception in the relationship between HPV infections and cervical cancer, and has evolved over the past 26 years to encompass HPV and penile, anal, and oral cancers in men. Her work has contributed significantly to our understanding of the rate at which HPV infections are acquired and cleared, the proportion that progress to disease, and also to HPV vaccine protection against multiple diseases in women and men. Dr Giuliano was a contributor to 2005 International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) report that concluded for the first time that HPV is a cause of multiple cancers in women and men. In 2013, at the 100th anniversary of the American Cancer Society (ACS), she was the recipient of the ACS Distinguished Achievement in Cancer Award.
Dr Giuliano has authored more than 320 peer-reviewed publications.
