Elisa Giusto

Elisa Giusto of Mountain Top graduated magna cum laude from The University of Scranton’s Honors Program, which is among the Jesuit university’s programs of excellence. Students in the Honors Program pursue a rigorous education that stresses independent work through close engagement with professors and other honors students, including the preparation, presentation and defense of a research or creative project during their senior year.

A biology major, Giusto’s thesis was “Oxidative Stress Alters APP Expression in Neurons Derived from the Chick Embryonic Brain”, completed with the guidance of faculty mentor George R. Gomez, Ph. D., associate professor of biology.
