Graduate Research Assistant, COLLEGE OF MEDICINE MOLECULAR MEDICINE
I am currently working in a virology lab to determine how respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) nonstructural protein 2 (NS2) interacts with the host to antagonize the interferon response and enhance viral replication. Specifically, I am concentrating on identifying protein-protein interactions between NS2 and the host ubiquitin system, as well as identifying NS2 residues that are essential for its function.
