I am a class of 2016 undergraduate majoring in biology with a probable chemistry minor. I am particularly interested in virology and immunology. Since September 2012, I have been working in the Pickup lab, where I am engaged in a project to improve on current live viral vaccine vectors. One objective is to determine if alterations to a vaccinia virus vector that is replication-deficient can enhance immune responses to vector-encoded HIV proteins without decreasing the safety of the vaccine vector.
