Anna Robinson is a junior majoring in animal sciences from Vestavia Hills, Alabama. When Anna was six years old, her father lost his battle with brain cancer. This led her to study neuro-oncology and to seek out a research project in order to fight cancer in memory of her dad. Her research involves studying natural extracts as a form of complementary medicine for brain cancer on top of traditional chemotherapy in order to maximize the power of treatment while reducing the amount of artificial substances that are needed to reach this same outcome.

Project title: Mistletoe extract as a form of complementary medicine for canine glioblastomas

Mentor: Dr. J. Scott McElroy
