Donis-Keller has a B.Sc. and an H.B.Sc. from Lakehead University. She earned her Ph.D. at Harvard University under the direction of Walter Gilbert in 1979.[1] After employment at the biotechnology companies Biogen and Collaborative Research, she joined the faculty at Washington University School of Medicine.[2][3] In 2001, she earn an MFA in studio art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Tufts University[citation needed] and she joined the faculty at the Olin College of Engineering.[1] In 2012, she was named the Michael.

Donis-Keller’s graduate research established a method to do RNA sequencing.[5][6][7] During her time at Collaborative Research, her research group created the first genetic map of the human genome.[8] Donis-Keller was unable to secure either NIH or venture funding for generating the RFLP map, but convinced Collaborative Research’s management to fund the project.[9][10] She continued to work on the genetic linkage map[11] and led research into understanding the genetic basis of cystic fibrosis,[12]thyroid cancer,[13] and breast cancer.[14][15]
