Brenda Westerhuis investigates human enteroviruses (HEV) and human parechoviruses (HPeVs). Different phenotypes of these viruses contain a so-called RGD motif, which is important for binding the virus to the receptor on the cell. The genotype HPeV2 does not, however, contain this motif, which renders receptor binding impossible. Westerhuis tries to explain this difference.
