Madison Green Named 2021 Outstanding Senior in Biological Sciences

The Division of Biological Sciences congratulates Madison T. Green on being selected for the 2021 Mary Margaret McCarty Outstanding Senior in Biological Sciences Award.

“I cannot be more thankful to all those who have helped me on my journey. While not possible to list them all, I hope they know how much their support has meant. I am especially grateful for the support of Dr. Cheryl Rosenfeld as she has given me the most influential opportunity of my undergraduate career. I also want to thank Dr. Michael Roberts for his guidance and for imparting a further appreciation for research.”

Originally from Warrensburg, MO, Green double majored in Biological Sciences and Public Health. She carried out research in the laboratory of Dr. Cheryl Rosenfeld with the Department of Biomedical Sciences, during which time she was partially supported by an A&S Undergraduate Research and Creative Fellowship. Her research efforts led to a first-author research paper in Placenta, wherein she described the effects of maternal oxycodone exposure on placental development. Green is co-author on two other research papers and has a fourth one currently under review.

After graduation, Green intends to pursue a Master in Public Health degree before going on to medical school.

The award is given annually to one or more outstanding juniors or seniors in the Biological Sciences in recognition of their academic achievements, the quality of their independent research projects, and their extracurricular contributions to the division and to the university. This award is made available by an endowment established in memory of Mary Margaret McCarty.
