Lindsay’s primary research interest is bacterial enzymes and pathways responsible for the degradation of aromatic compounds, including lignin, and steroids. His most significant contributions, including the first characterization of a bacterial lignin-degrading enzyme, have changed the way we think about how important classes of enzymes work and how certain pathogens survive in their hosts. Lindsay’s research has important implications for the development of novel biocatalysts for more sustainable processes as well as the development of novel therapeutics.
