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 doctoral 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. In her free time, Lisa-Marie enjoys dancing ballet, listening to music, and reading.
