Amy DeLury Named Professor for a Day
Sachem High School North science research junior Amy DeLury was among 16 high school students from New York City and Long Island chosen to participate in the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Professor for a Day program, examining protein homeostasis in health and disease.

The program serves as an opportunity for Amy to expand upon her extensive prion research and hear the latest innovative ideas from leading investigators in the field. 

In addition to her work in science research, Amy is currently enrolled in a number of challenging Advanced Placement classes, including chemistry, language and composition, physics, Spanish and U.S. history.

“I love science research because you can choose any project you like,” Amy said. “It is just like ordinary problem-solving but your solutions can change the world.”
