Caption: Jane Blankenship Gibson (born 1936), US physicist. Blankenship accepted a position at Lockheed Research Laboratory adjacent to the Stanford campus where she performed spectroscopic studies of species in high temperature air using a shock tube. She enrolled in a master's program at Stanford because she wanted to study quantum mechanics, and continued to work at Lockheed. She became a Staff Research Associate in Professor Donald Helinski's molecular biology laboratory at University of California San Diego in 1975 where she worked with restriction enzymes and plasmid DNA in E-coli bacteria. In 1979 she transferred to General Atomics and spent the rest of her career working on energy, fission and fusion research.
