GREENVILLE, S.C. (May 31, 2017) – Paige Heiple, a senior biochemistry and molecular biology major at Bob Jones University, will serve this summer as a research intern at Cayman Chemical, a company located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, that produces pharmaceutical ingredients and products for forensic science and biomedical research.
“In the summer of 2016, Paige did highly-successful research on the BJU campus in a collaborative effort with Cayman,” says Dr. Brian Vogt, head of BJU’s Department of Chemistry and Physics. “This internship is a great opportunity to further develop her research ability.”
Heiple, a resident of Homer City, will work in the lab of the Drug Discovery and Medicinal Chemistry Department. Her responsibilities include lab management, reaction preparations and set ups, work ups, purifications, spectra interpretation and record management.
“Being accepted for this opportunity is very exciting,” said Heiple. “This internship will give me with the skills I need to succeed not only in the general chemical industry, but also in my desired career of cancer drug design.”
