Profile-Evelyn Covés-Datson

Evie is a sixth-year Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) and fourth-year Microbiology and Immunology PhD student. She proudly hails from Ann Arbor, Michigan, and attended the University of Michigan for studies in Microbiology, and in French and Francophone Studies. In the Markovitz laboratory she investigates the mechanism of action by which a new antiviral lectin (sugar-binding protein) inhibits influenza virus replication. Broadly, she is interested in infectious diseases and viral pathogenesis, and she plans to develop a career as a physician-scientist in Infectious Diseases. Outside of the laboratory, Evie is fascinated by the visual and culinary arts, and she also enjoys music (as a saxophonist), dance, and Michigan football.
