The Viral Carcinogenesis and Cancer Biology Research Group (a.k.a. ViriCan) aims to produce and disseminate knowledge on the role of selected human viruses in the development of human cancers, as well as to contribute for better understanding of the biology of malignant tumors. We are part of the Botucatu School of Medicine, State University of Sao Paulo (UNESP).

     Our laboratory is localized at the Institute of Biotechnology (IBTEC), in Botucatu, Sao Paulo State, Brazil.  A poster with some information about our research group is available in this link.
