Specialization in Biochemistry Research with Dr. Owen Pornillos

I live in Alexandria VA, went to Thomas A. Edison HS, I’m a biochemistry major. My research mentor is Owen Pornillos, and in his lab i will work on isolating, purifying and analyzing the Arf domain of TRIM23 (a protein). The Arf domain is responsible for bonding TRIM23 to other proteins which ultimately leads to the transcription of anti-viral proteins.
