Melissa Pamula has been closely involved with the Aresty Research Program for Undergraduates for the past three years. As a sophomore, she was offered a position as an Aresty Research Assistant in the lab of Dr. Sarah Hitchcock-DeGregori at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. There, she worked on a bioinformatics project that required the analysis and alignment of invertebrate tropomyosin sequences. The Hitchcock-DeGregori lab is interested in understanding the molecular interactions between the actin filament and its universal regulator, tropomyosin.
