Dr. Tami Kingsbury received her Ph.D. in biology at Johns Hopkins University, studying yeast genetics and molecular biology. During her post-doctoral training at Johns Hopkins University, she studied calcium signaling in yeast and discovered a novel family of calcineurin regulators transferred from yeast to humans. Dr. Kingsbury pursued additional post-doctoral training in neurobiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, where she was promoted to faculty and appointed a BIRCWH Scholar in the Department of Physiology. Her research focused on calcium signaling and the regulation of gene expression with funding from the NIH, Department of Defense and Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund. She taught undergraduate and graduate courses at Johns Hopkins University, Towson University and the University of Maryland Baltimore and participated in programs to provide research opportunities for undergraduate and high school students. During her tenure at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, she helped establish the Center for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine and was the founding director of CRISPR Core Services.
