Press Release

The Guy C. Berry Graduate Research Award recognizes excellence in research by MCS graduate students. This award was established in 2005.

Guy C. Berry, emeritus university professor of chemistry, is widely recognized as a leader in rheology and light scattering of polymers. Rheology, a branch of mechanics, is the study of those properties of materials that determine their response to mechanical force.

Berry has a long history of outstanding contributions to the literature in experimental fluid physics using mechanical methods and light scattering, as well as in theoretical concepts of the rheology and thermodynamics of complex fluids. His work has advanced the study of important issues in the conformation and dynamics of macromolecules.
