Kavli INsD’s first Research Fellow – Dr Lindsay Baker

Kavli INsD fellowships seek to cement interdisciplinary interactions and encourage researchers to expand their expertise by switching disciplines. 

Fittingly, we are pleased to welcome our first Research Fellow in Electron Microscopy, Dr Lindsay Baker. Her background is highly inter-disciplinary with diverse training in physics and biology, from high energy physics to molecular virology, but her focus for more than 10 years has been electron cryo-microscopy (cryoEM). CryoEM allows sub-nm resolution structural information about cells and biomolecules to be obtained in a near native, frozen solution state.

Her latest research focuses on tools to study native cellular membranes, with special focus on development of tools for cellular cryoEM and methods to combine cryoEM with NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry.
