FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - At the University of Arkansas, our Razorback community is like family. For Alex and Chris Nelson, that expression can be taken literally.

The Nelson brothers are both faculty members in the College of Engineering and alumni of the U of A. Alex is an assistant professor of computer science and computer engineering. Chris is an assistant professor of biomedical engineering. 

Meet the Nelsons in the latest Short Takes video, Faculty Brothers. The Nelsons bring their knowledge and connection to the classroom and laboratory every day to help teach the next generation of engineers and develop new technology that improves lives.

Note: This video was filmed in early 2020, before the pandemic hit.
