  • “Keeping people healthy means understanding mosquitoes, ticks and other insects that carry disease. Research into tick management and vector surveillance with Dr. Laura Harrington as her Cornell Cooperative Extension summer intern helped me realize the role vector-borne diseases play in human health,” says Bailey Willett ’20, a double major in entomology and biological sciences.

    “Vector biology is so unique in its combination of microbiology, global health, and ecology all in one field. On campus, I'm further exploring my new passion through my new entomology major and continuing pesticide resistance research with Dr. Harrington. One day I want to be a doctor and this Cornell CALS summer experience was fundamental in redirecting my career path to vector-borne disease medicine and epidemiology."

  • “Ever since I was a young girl, I found beauty in that which often goes unnoticed — from the tattered remains of insect-chewed leaves to the thin filaments of mycelium festooned beneath the forest floor," says Summer Rayne Oakes '04, a natural resources major and author and founder of Homestead Brooklyn, an initiative to help people become more attuned to nature in New York City.

    "As an environmental communicator, I find it’s a joy to be able to take these often-overlooked elements of nature and rekindle people’s love for the outdoors. Sometimes this starts off with something as humble as a houseplant. But once someone is hooked, it’s easy to begin to share the beauty in all of earth’s creations.”

  • "Cornell AgriTech is a really special place because everyone is working in tandem to make a difference through their research. Faculty members work across disciplines to answer important scientific agricultural questions and the impacts of this multidisciplinary approach are evident. My time at Cornell AgriTech has given me the fuel I need to make a difference as a scientist and to teach others to do the same," says Elizabeth Cieniewicz, Plant-Microbe Biology Section in the School of Integrative Plant Science.

  • CRISPR-Cas3, a new type of gene editing CRISPR system developed by Ailong Ke, professor of molecular biology and genetics, can efficiently erase long stretches of DNA from a targeted site in the human genome, a capability not easily attainable in more traditional CRISPR-Cas9 systems. The new system has the potential to seek out and erase such ectopic viruses as herpes simplex, Epstein-Barr, and hepatitis B.

  • Scientists in our biological and environmental engineering department have tapped into the unique nature of DNA molecules, creating a 'lifelike' material with artificial metabolism.

    “We are introducing a brand-new, lifelike material concept powered by its very own artificial metabolism. We are not making something that’s alive, but we are creating materials that are much more lifelike than have ever been seen before,” says Dan Luo, professor of BEE.

  • What inspires our students? For Isabella Yannuzzi ‘20, it’s her love of agriculture: "Growing up, my parents definitely encouraged my love of plants, and I always had pots of flowers and vegetables all over my room. I worked on a farm throughout high school, and getting to be outside in the field everyday, tending to the plants, I fell in love with agriculture. Being at Cornell has been fantastic, and I never thought I’d get learn so much from such passionate people in my field.”

It isn’t something I found on the pages of a textbook or in the confines of the classroom— it’s life, it’s reality,” says Marquan Jones ’20, a development sociology major who works on projects related to access to nutritious foods and issues of inequality. “Cornell amplified my passion to solve the problems facing my community, but academia was never my source of inspiration: home was. Studying Development Sociology in particular has provided me with the skills to articulate the phenomena I’ve experienced my whole life, allowing me to build on the foundation of my experiences in a way that enables me to impact communities positively."
