Sister M. Lucy Gantt is a Sister of Saint Francis of the Martyr Saint George (FSGM). In a progression that spanned from 1996-2012, Sister M. Lucy earned her bachelor of science in biochemistry from Washington State University, followed by her masters and PhD from the University of Michigan. After completing two years of post-doctoral studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Sister M. Lucy entered the convent. In August of 2012 she made her first profession of vows and joined the chemistry faculty at Franciscan University.
