Saving Elyse

The Cold Case Project, an initiative in the Children’s Law Center, focuses on a select group of adolescents who have lingered in the S.C. foster system and are at risk for aging out of foster care without achieving legal permanency — that is, without a family. Partnering with DSS and the family courts, Cold Case staff find ways to reunite these at-risk foster children with responsible family members or to match them with a new family. With children’s lives at stake, giving up is not an option.

Transcending space-time with SAXS

Nanoscale research in South Carolina got a big boost with last year’s installation of a Small-Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) laboratory in the Horizon building. The state facility sports a powerful, automated, rapid-throughput instrument that director Morgan Stefik (right) describes as a “game changer.”
