A team of researchers from the Scofield Laboratory at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) recently published an article “Amperometric measurements of cocaine cue and novel context‐evoked glutamate and nitric oxide release in the nucleus accumbens core” in the Journal of Neurochemistry.
Out of the eight authors credited, five are CofC Honors alumni or current students:
John McFaddin ’18 (Biochemistry)
Keiana Haigh ’22 (Biology)
Mary Nan Leath ’21 (Biology)
Kaylee Hooker ’19 (Biology)
Lilly McGonegal ’22 (Biology)

Undergraduate research is a integral part of the Honors College academic experience. Dr. Beth Meyer-Bernstein, Honors College Associate Dean and Director of the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities, adds that peer-reviewed, original research articles set students apart from their peers when they apply to graduate or professional schools, or head into the job market. “A publication in such a prestigious journal speaks highly of their commitment, aptitude for research, and quality of their mentored experience,” said Meyer-Bernstein.
