Dr. Bulyk received dual undergraduate degrees in Biology and in Mathematics from MIT in 1993. She received her Ph.D. in Biophysics in 2001 from Harvard University, where she worked in Dr. George Church’s group. Shortly thereafter, she began as an Assistant Professor at Harvard. Currently she is a Professor in the Division of Genetics in the Department of Medicine, and also a Professor of Pathology, at Brigham & Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She is also an Associate Member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and an Associate Member of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s Center for Cancer Systems Biology.

In 2005 Dr. Bulyk was named one of the TR35, MIT Technology Review’s annual competition to select the top 35 young innovators under the age of 35, and in 2007 she was named in Genome Technology’s annual selection of “Tomorrow’s PIs”. She has served on numerous grant review panels and journal editorial boards, and is a Member of Faculty of 1000. Dr. Bulyk has published over 100 scientific articles and book chapters, and has presented over 190 invited seminars. Her group is currently focused on studies of transcription factors and DNA regulatory elements, using a variety of experimental and computational approaches, including new technologies they have developed.
