As an undergraduate in the laboratory, Justin worked on the expression and purification of the outer membrane protein A (OmpA) from N. meningitidis. Side chain dynamics of OmpA were interrogated using electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy.
In his first summer of Medical School, Justin participated in the Medical Student Summer Research Program, and investigated the conformation of nitroxide side chains on membrane proteins, specifically LeuT, using X-ray crystallography.
