CEMS Nick Edgington

Nicholas Edgington is an Associate Professor at Southern Connecticut State University.

Prior to coming to SCSU, he was a Research Scientist in the Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, at the State University of New York in Stony Brook, NY for two years. Prior to that, he performed four years of Postdoctoral research at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in Cold Spring Harbor, New York.

His research centers on two interdependent cellular processes that are the regulation of cell size, and cell cycle progression. Specifically, he is interested in understanding how volume of the nucleus is regulated by cytoplasmic volume (i.e. maintenance of the karyoplasmic ratio), and to elucidate the regulatory mechanisms of nuclear-cytoplasmic shuttling of the G1 cyclin protein, Cln2.

Dr. Edgington is a member of the Pathways to Academic Excellence (PAcE) Steering Committee.
