About Bailey Tibben

  • Bailey Tibben

    Undergraduate university: University of Arizona (B.S. in molecular and cellular biology)
  • Thesis: Mechanisms of oncohistone-mediated tumorigenesis
  • Mentor: Scott Rothbart, Ph.D.
  • Experience: Bailey worked in Dr. Ross Buchan’s lab studying stress granules and p bodies in yeast cells. In June 2016, she began a project titled Implications of Cdc48 in stress granule clearance and autophagy, and presented her findings in both poster and oral forms. Thus far, she has implemented techniques such as growth assays, fluorescence microscopy, PCR and homologous recombination to engineer and analyze Cdc48 mutations as well as Cdc48/Atg15 double mutations. By analyzing stress granule accumulation and clearance in these various mutants, she hopes to shed light on these mechanisms and contribute to research in the treatment of neurodegenerative disease, such as ALS.
  • Hometown: Mesa, Arizona
  • Hobbies: Piano, video games, reading and spending time with my pets
