Elyse Bolterstein
Assistant Professor of Biology
Northeastern Illinois University
Chicago, IL
TEACRS Alumna - 2014





I joined the TEACRS Program after completing my PhD in Molecular & Environmental Toxicology at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I conducted my research with Mitch McVey, PhD, Associate Professor of Biology.

My postdoctoral research centered on developmental effects in Drosophila resulting from deficiencies in DNA repair machinery.  A goal was to help elucidate the role of DNA repair mechanisms during development and cell cycle regulation in multi-cellular organisms.

As part of the TEACRS Program, I taught Cell Biology with lecture and lab at Bunker Hill Community College.

I am continuing my career in research and teaching in the Biology Department at Northeastern Illinois University.
