At NC State, Lindsey studied West Nile and Dengue Virus, with her primary project focusing on generating single-stranded DNA aptamers against Dengue non-structural protein 1 (NS1) for use in enzyme-linked aptamer-sorbent assays (ELASA’s) as a cheaper alternative to ELISA-based screening of patient blood for Dengue infection.
Lindsey taught General Microbiology as an Adjunct Instructor at Durham Technical Community College. At NC State she taught General Microbiology, Medical Microbiology, and Microbial Diversity. She has also taught two student research-centric courses: 1) General Microbiology lab for Microbiology majors, which offered students the opportunity to participate in authentic research with Mt. Olive pickle company, and 2) Scientific Inquiry in Microbiology, where students screened bacteria from various environmental sources for the ability to produce novel antibiotics which would be effective at combating common ESCAPE pathogens. ESCAPE pathogens being defined as any pathogenic bacterium which has developed antibiotic resistance.
