Welcome to the Nelson Lab Website!

We are located in the department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT. Our research interests include understanding embryonic development at a single-cell level and how gene regulatory networks affect cell function, particularly lineage specification.
