Berry Research Students

Students enjoy working in the newly constructed (2005) $33 million dollar Swenson Science Building. Our research lab contains four fume hoods, mulitple rows of benches, desks for students, and state of the art research equipment.

I have had the great fortune of working with outstanding students over the years. Students find the research experience to be challenging and fun! There are numerous rewards including a deeper understanding of coursework and a clarity in future career goals. If you are interested in a position in lab, please contact Dr. Berry for information on openings.
