Kyndall received her B.S. in Biochemistry with a minor in psychology from Hampton University in Hampton, VA. Kyndall is a former DI volleyball player, which sparked her interests in concussions and traumatic brain injury. As a Neuroscience PhD candidate in Dr. Kacy Cullen’s lab, she is researching how diet influences post traumatic brain injury damage. Kyndall serves as the Ernest E. Just Biomedical Society President, a Center for Undergraduate & Research Fellowships (CURF) Graduate Fellow, Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) Fellow, and is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Gilliam Fellow. Kyndall works with The Franklin Institute to organize annual CRISPR workshops for high schoolers, mentors high school students internationally and nationally through Lumiere Education, and mentors undergraduate students on their projects in her lab. Kyndall was born and raised in central Maryland, so in her free time she loves to eat crabs, go to Ravens football games, and go on bike rides.
