Honors sophomore Ansley Elkins is conducting some fascinating research on transfer RNAs this summer, under the mentorship of Biology professor (and Honors Advising Fellow) Dr. Renaud Geslain. Check out the post from our friends at the College of Charleston School of Sciences & Mathematics to learn more!

This summer, rising sophomore, and Honors student Ansley Elkins is working with Dr. Renaud Geslain to study transfer RNAs (tRNAs), a class of macromolecules that are expressed in all living organisms and that are essential for the biosynthesis of proteins.

Ansley's research project aims at establishing the first atlas of tRNA expression in mouse tissues. So far, she dissected 10 different mouse organs, generated nearly 30 replicates, and successfully optimized the protocols for the isolation of their tRNAs. During the second part of her summer internship, Ansley will monitor the abundance of 56 tRNA species across those different tissue samples using a tRNA microarray technique developed in the lab.

Once her analysis platform is up and running, she will introduce new variables such as different stages of development and different model of diseases.

The Honors College provides students with interdisciplinary courses which are designed to encourage thoughtful collaboration of wide-ranging topics and ideas. Dr. Annalisa Calini’s Spring 2021 Honors course, HONS 216 Conceptual Tour of Contemporary Mathematics, proved that the arts can be an ideal medium through which to explore mathematical concepts.

While a honors math class may not be your first stop to find such amazing artwork, these students created some impressive artwork. Check out a sample of their artistic assignments and projects from this past semester in the blog post below!

Graduating Senior’s Wild Ride to Continue Across the Pond | 04/23/2021

Graduating Senior’s Wild Ride to Continue Across the Pond |

WHAT’S NEXT for Honors senior Allyson Pace? After graduating with a degree in Biology this May, Allyson is headed to London! She will be attending the Royal Veterinary College of London to complete her Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine & Surgery (BVM&S), the British equivalent of the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree here in America.

Allyson has always had a passion for animals, and that passion has provided her with leadership opportunities that are carrying her into a post-grad career.

“I probably would not have imagined myself being in the leadership positions I’m in today. I serve as the president of the Pre-Veterinary Society and captain of the Equestrian team. I took the Principles of Leadership Honors course in my junior year where we learned essential skills and qualities of a leader that I still use today. Both roles have taught me so much about working as a team and learning problem solving skills, which I believe stood out on my veterinary school applications.”

Honors Grad Channels Multiple Academic Passions into a Dream Job |

WHAT'S NEXT for Honors alum and Masters grad Ally Lesher? Ally graduated in 2020 with a double major in mathematics and data science with a concentration in business analytics. She then remained at the College to complete a Master's in Mathematical Sciences as a part of the College's 4+1 program. Post-graduation, Ally has accepted a job as a data scientist with the Naval Information Warfare Center, where she will combine her academic passions as a member of the Center's data science/analytics team.

Amongst her pursuit of several academic passions, Allyson still found time to be involved in extracurricular activities like CofC's club crew team and Charleston Excursion.

"Do what makes you happy, not what other people think you should do. I may have had to sacrifice some sleep and socialization because I was always so busy, but I loved everything I was involved in. Everything I did in my life brought me joy and I’m glad I never did give anything up because someone else thought my life would be better with less in it."
