Amy Grube

Grube is a biochemistry major in the Honors Tutorial College. She spent last summer fulfilling a lifelong goal: interning at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

St. Jude’s internship program, called the Pediatric Oncology Education (POE) program, has allowed Grube to see firsthand how biochemistry and laboratory research affect the lives and health of children and their families.

“One of the best things about this internship is being able to see the immediate results from my research,” Grube says. “The compounds that I make are taken straight to be tested on leukemia cell lines after they’re made and the structure is confirmed. So, I have results within a few days that tell me whether my compounds are toxic to certain cancer cells.”
