Andrea Eastes

Andrea Eastes is focusing on the role of the matrix protein (M) of human metapneumovirus (HMPV) in viral assembly.  In particular, she will be comparing the protein interactions and localization of a HA-tagged version of M to the wild-type.  This will provide novel information on the protein interactions of M that may play a critical role in the assembly and budding of HMPV. Her mentor will be Rebecca Dutch in the Department of Biochemistry.
