Aileen is a 4th year iSci student who is searching for new pilus-specific bacteriophages in environmental samples, and using a novel pilin library to characterize the range of pilins that they can use as receptors. She is also working to understand the function of the pilin accessory proteins TfpY and TfpZ, which may play a role in defence against phage.
