Debbie Thurtle-Schmidt’s research examines factors that influence how and when genes are expressed. Her work identifies the boundary effectors that ensure both correct transcriptional regulation of target genes and prevent aberrant regulation of neighboring genes. Specifically, she is examining boundary effectors that insulate the nuclear hormone receptor (NHR-25) in nematode worms (C. elegans).
