The Research Project, Week Forty One, South Carolina

In his will, Thomas Green Clemson left a large part of his personal estate to establish what would become Clemson University. Initially an all-male military school, Clemson Agricultural College opened in July 1893 with 446 students. Over years, this South Carolina school has transformed itself into a top-25 national university.

Among the many research projects listed below the one that caught my attention is the one about Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS). NAS is the days of drug-withdrawal agony that infants who are born to mothers addicted to opioids go through during the first few days of their lives.

According to a recent article by Senator Amy Klobuchar in our local newspaper, opioid abuse has reached a crisis level in our country, killing 28, 648 Americans in 2014. She has introduced bipartisan legislation to pursue proved strategies to combat this crisis.
