INTRODUCTION

 

WELCOME TO OUR PAGE!

Hello, we are your PoxMasters Jennifer Aguayo and Jessica Calderˇn.  We are both juniors at Stanford University.  Master Aguayo is majoring in Human Biology with a concentration in Health Policy and the Impact of Disease in Underserved Communities.  Master Calderˇn is double majoring in Psychology and Human Biology.  Her concentration in Human Biology is the Impact of HIV/AIDS in the Latino Community.       

We will serve as your official tour guides on this virological journey through the land of Poxviridae.  We guarantee we are properly trained in the art of virology by Sensai Siegel.

Before we begin, we'd like to advise you not to let the complexity of poxvirus intimidate you, nor let the eradication  of its most well- known virus fool you into overlooking  the  importance of this viral family.  With that in mind, let us embark on our learning excavation!
