Cassandra R. Nelson, MS, PhD

With an expertise in skeletal muscle and exercise physiology, Dr. Nelson earned her PhD from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2014 and since then has had faculty appointments at three different universities - Marian University (Wisconsin), Marquette University, and currently at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey.

Dr. Nelson’s primary professional focus has been undergraduate teaching, as she has taught a wealth of courses ranging from non-majors biology to cellular neurobiology, vertebrate anatomy and development, and systems and experimental physiology. Publications include Cardiovascular Research, American Journal of Physiology, and Environmental Science: Processes & Impacts. An accomplished division 1 track and field and cross country athlete at Marquette University, Dr. Nelson continues to enjoy running, having completed 18 half marathons and 5 marathons. She loves to bring the physiology of running and exercise into her teaching and research.
