Behind the Uniform Student Spotlights

Robyn Moraney

Robyn Moraney

Robyn Moraney, junior biology major, spent her summer researching neurodegenerative diseases through the South Carolina Allegiance for Minorities Participation (SC-AMP). Requiring an approximate total of 500 hours in labs, the research eventually lead to her discovering a pattern between the degeneration of cells’ mitochondria and a variety of neurological diseases, particularly disorders that affect motor function. The job involved a large amount of lab work alongside a university professor in USC’s pharmacy department. Coming in at 9:00 a.m. and leaving at 6:00 p.m. five days a week, Robyn spent her time assessing the neurological effects of damage to DNA strands and mitochondria, finding that even a small amount of damage to a small percentage of mitochondria can actually cause a lot of problems with motor function. However tedious the lab work got, Robyn hopes to attend medical school to become a neurosurgeon following graduation, so says she’s glad she had the experience. Despite the heavy and challenging time commitment, she says “It’s interesting to see that the work I’m doing now could potentially save someone’s life later down the road.”
