Nicholas Wightman, Manager Research Operations, Brown Lab

Date Posted: Tuesday, March 12, 2024

Nicholas Wightman, Mgr Research Operations, Brown LabNicholas Wightman has been a pillar of our laboratory research team since 2009 when he joined Brown Lab. This October will mark his 15th work anniversary with UMass Chan Medical School. Nicholas was born and raised in Worcester where he also earned a BA in Biology from Assumption College. He had been fascinated by science from a young age, and working with Dr. Brown has allowed him to learn about research and the science behind it.

"When I started I knew nothing about working in an actual research lab. Thanks to the phenomenal team that Dr. Brown works with, I was able to learn and grow professionally. Now, I am one of the most senior members of the team and I am happy to share what I have learned with the next generation of scientists."

When considering future career pursuits, Nicholas mentions he would like to obtain a master's or maybe even a PhD in the future.

Nicholas has shared he finds working in research to be rewarding because there is always something new to learn. Every day presents new challenges and techniques to master. The most rewarding aspect of his day is being able to help others and make sure his team gets what they need to succeed.

Thank you Nicholas Wightman for
