Ever since working as a student assistant at an antiviral institute, Michelle learned that many virus strains are underrepresented in terms of media coverage causing less funding to research these viruses. Therefore, she gained interest in spreading information about these underrepresented viruses with hopes that it may spark research to find therapeutic options for these diseases. In the future, Michelle hopes to develop therapeutic and chemotherapeutic agents that mitigate severe side effects patients are facing with current common therapies.
