Scientists estimate that as much as 17% of all cancers are caused by viruses, including human papillomaviruses (HPV), a ubiquitous viral family. In this new documentary by Science Bulletins, the American Museum of Natural History's current-science video program, doctors and molecular biologists uncover HPV's complex life history to treat cervical and oral cancers -- and even prevent them. This video was funded by a NIH Science Education Partnership Award.
