Feingold Joins NCHGR Research Grants Branch

Elise Feingold has joined the National Center for Human Genome Research (NCHGR) as a program administrator in the Research Grants Branch, where she will oversee genetic-mapping research grants and individual fellowships. Her duties will also include coordination of single-chromosome mapping workshops. Feingold comes to NCHGR from the NIH Office of Extramural Programs, where she was a grants associate.

After obtaining her Ph.D. in human genetics from Yale University, Feingold was a postdoctoral fellow in the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Laboratory of Biochemistry, where she worked with Dean Hamer. She studied the regulation of metallothionein gene expression and received an individual National Research Service Award from NCI for her work.

As a staff fellow in the Clinical Hematology Branch at the NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, she worked with Arthur Nienhuis on structure-function analysis of the monocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (CSF-1) receptor. The knowledge gained from this work aided in her study of hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin, a condition in which fetal hemoglobin expression is disregulated.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
