Hi! My name is Meiven Yang, and I am a rising junior at the University of Arizona majoring in Bioinformatics and Biochemistry. I have been working in Dr. Goodrum’s lab since Summer of 2021, where we study Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV). HCMV contributes to mortality among the immunocompromised and birth defects among newborns; there are currently limited therapies and no existing vaccines against the virus. My project focuses on mapping protein-protein interactions relative to the UL136 gene, which contributes to the regulation of viral latency and reactivation. After graduation, I am hoping to either work in industry or attend graduate school. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, working out, and painting.
