Wilson’s career plans shift from dance to plant genetic research Friday, September 29, 2023
Lauren Wilson isn’t exactly sure how she landed at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln to study agriculture, genetics and plant pathology. But she is thrilled to be here.
Wilson is a senior plant and landscape systems major minoring in plant pathology with the goal of someday working in a lab to genetically engineer disease resistance in crops.
