Frederick E. Domann

University of Iowa, USA


Frederick E. Domann received his B.S. degree in biology from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in 1983, and his Ph.D. degree in human cancer biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1991. He received his postdoctoral training in molecular carcinogenesis at the University of Arizona Cancer Center in 1993. He joined the faculty of the University of Iowa in 1993, where he received tenure in 1999 and became a Full Professor in 2006. Dr. Domann works within the Free Radical and Radiation Biology Program at the Department of Radiation Oncology. In 1995, Dr. Domann was selected as an Outstanding Recent Alumnus by the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. He has published more than 85 peer-reviewed and often cited journal articles pertaining to free radical and cancer biology. Dr. Domann has served as a Member of the NIH Study Section of Cancer Molecular Pathobiology; an ad hoc grant Reviewer for the various study sections at the NIH, DOD, and ACS; a Reviewer for numerous scientific journals, on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Gene Regulation and Systems Biology, and an Editorial Advisor for Biochemical Journal. Postgraduate training of the next generation of scientists is a high priority to Dr. Domann, and he has trained fifteen Ph.D. graduates and five postdoctoral fellows, all of whom are in successful scientific careers. His research is focused on the study of transcriptional regulation of antioxidant enzyme gene expression during cancer progression, and the effects of epigenetic processes that modulate chromatin structure to render genes accessible to transcription. Dr. Domann is a Member of the Radiation Research Society, the Society for Free Radical Biology and Medicine, and Sigma Xi.
