Kimberley Gibson

Post-Graduate Associate, Sindelar Lab


My research focus involves resolving the structure of the Leptospira flagella using Cryo Electron Tomography. Our lab is collaborating with Elsio Wunder and Albert Ko (Yale School of Public Health) to better understand the relationship between the motility and pathogenicity of this highly unique Spirochete bacterium.


Kimberley Gibson's Profile on ResearchGate



PhD Student, Sindelar Lab


My research focuses on using Cryo EM with 2D single particle class averaging to understand how the AAA-ATPase, Spastin, binds to microtubules which results in their severing.
