Dr. Fiering received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Michigan in 1975, and his Doctorate from Stanford in 1990. After postdoctoral work as an NIH research fellow and research associate at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Dr. Fiering joined the faculty of the Department of Microbiology at Dartmouth Medical School in 1997.
My lab investigates the function of various cis-regulatory DNA elements in controlling transcription during mammalian development. Our present focus is on the beta-globin locus and in particular, how expression of one gene at the locus suppresses expression of other nearby genes. We are also interested in mouse models of cancer and are developing novel mouse models. The influence of tobacco smoke exposure on the innate immune system is another area of research in the lab.
