Campus Champion

Madeline Berry discovered SUNY Cortland through her passion for running. A chemistry class unlocked her academic curiosity. Now, under the direction of Associate Professor Frank Rossi of the Chemistry Department, she’s preparing for her final year doing what she loves. Madeline earned the 2019 David F. Berger Summer Research Fellowship, an award for SUNY Cortland’s top undergraduate student pursuing independent research in biology, chemistry or psychology. She is helping to develop a method to track how a virus moves through a cell. “Chemistry challenges me and its problem-solving principles apply to many life situations,” Madeline said.
