    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Nielsen studied Microbiology during her undergraduate studies at The University of Iowa. She then enrolled in the Medical Scientist Training Program at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine where she completed her medical training. She carried out her graduate work in the laboratory of Dr. Scott Hultgren at Washington University in St. Louis. Her doctoral thesis was entitled "Molecular Basis of the Biogenesis and Function of the Enterococcus faecalis Endocarditis- and Biofilm-Associated Pilus." Her Internal Medicine training at UCSF completed in 2018, and she is currently a fellow in the Division of Rheumatology at UCSF.
