Michael Bulger, Ph.D.

The Bulger laboratory investigates the interplay between tissue-specific gene expression and large-scale patterns of chromatin structure with a focus on the beta-globin gene locus. Abnormalities of this locus are the cause of sickle cell disease and thalassemia syndromes, the most common genetic disorders of children world-wide.
