Distinguished Lecture Celeste Nelson

Location: Georgia Institute of Technology ( "Suddath Room" in the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience) and Webinar Link

"Building Tissue Complexity: Lessons from the Tree of Life" by Dr. Celeste Nelson, Ph.D.

Celeste M. Nelson is a Professor in the Departments of Chemical & Biological Engineering and Molecular Biology at Princeton University. She earned S.B. degrees in Chemical Engineering and Biology at MIT in 1998, a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2003, followed by postdoctoral training in Life Sciences at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory until 2007. Her laboratory specializes in using engineered tissues and computational models to understand how mechanical forces direct developmental patterning events during tissue morphogenesis and during disease progression. She has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications. Dr. Nelson's contributions to the fields of tissue mechanics and morphogenesis have been recognized by a number of awards, including a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Award at the Scientific Interface (2007), a Packard Fellowship (2008), a Sloan Fellowship (2010), the MIT TR35 (2010), the Allan P. Colburn Award (2011), a Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award (2012), and a Faculty Scholars Award from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (2016).
