Welcome to “She’s a Scientist,” a video series launched by University Communication to highlight the work of female researchers at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
Today, we’re showcasing Nicole Iverson, assistant professor of biological systems engineering. Iverson, whose prolonged illness as a teen helped inspire her career, is now developing nanoscopic sensors aimed at detecting earlier hints of disease at the cellular level. Learn more about Iverson’s work.
“She’s a Scientist” videos will run each Friday in March as part of Nebraska Today’s celebration of Women’s History Month and continue as a regular feature through the year. To nominate a researcher for the series, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 402-472-8515.
