Lisa-Marie Nisbett received both her B.S. and M.S. in Biology from the LIU Post Campus of Long Island University in 2009 and 2012 respectively, and her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Structural Biology from Stony Brook University in 2018. Her Ph.D research focused on the biochemical characterization of a novel nitric oxide-sensing domain, NosP, in two bacterial systems. Through this work, she established the involvement of NosP in cyclic-di-GMP signaling pathways and biofilm formation in  Shewanella oneidensis  and  Burkholderia thailandensis . Lisa-Marie’s current postdoctoral work in Dr. Jessica Seeliger’s laboratory at Stony Brook University focuses on determining the role of the lipoprotein LprG in outer membrane biogenesis in  Mycobacterium tuberculosis , the bacterium that causes tuberculosis in humans.

Why I chose to join IRACDA NY-CAPS:   The IRACDA NY-CAPS program provides me with the necessary research support, networking opportunities, critical teaching and academic skill sets that will facilitate my development as a research scientist who can help improve diversity in the STEM workforce by effectively mentoring and inspiring the future generation of scientists.
