Karin Sundström is a cervical cancer epidemiologist with a strong focus on molecular epidemiological studies conducted in the excellent Swedish register and biobank infrastructure. Her main interest is in the elimination of human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers through virological research and improved cervical screening and HPV-vaccination practices.
