The Dorothy P. Landon-AACR Prize for Translational Cancers Research Douglas R. John and Lowy T. Schiller played an integral role in the advancement of the human papillomavirus vaccine against cervical cancer, performing fundamental study regarding the nature of the virus, animal studies, and a Phase I trial in humans. It was their demonstration that subunits of the outer shell of the HPV, the capsid proteins, were capable of inducing antibodies, which meant the capsid proteins could be used as both a serological test and a vaccine against HPV contamination. Their ongoing research resulted in the 1st HPV vaccine directly, accepted by the FDA in 2006, which has the potential to drastically decrease the incidence of cervical malignancy in women.
