Congratulations to senior biochemistry major Anna Falls, who conducted her Honors Capstone Research with Dr. Perry Corbin, Associate Professor of Chemistry.  Anna recently completed a successful defense of her honors thesis, “Synthesis, Characterization, and Degradation of Calixarene-Core Polylactide Star Polymers.”  In addition to completing the requirements of the Honors Program, Anna has been active in the American Chemical Society as well as Ashland’s peer-tutoring program.  She is a College of Arts and Sciences Scholar and a Choose Ohio First Scholar.  Following graduation in December, Anna hopes to attend medical school and to pursue a career as a physician.
