Tamara Doering was an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins University, where she worked in the labs of Michael Edidin and Saul Roseman. She went on to the MSTP program at Johns Hopkins Medical School, where she worked with Paul Englund and Gerald Hart in the Department of Biological Chemistry. Her thesis work was on GPI anchor biosynthesis in African trypanosomes, and she received her degrees in 1991. Her postdoctoral fellowship (1993-6), during which she studied ER to Golgi transport of GPI-anchored proteins in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, was with Randy Schekman at the University of California at Berkeley. She visited Arturo Casadevall's lab at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine for part of the 1996-1997 academic year to get acquainted with her new microbe of choice, Cryptococcus neoformans, before joining the faculty in Pharmacology at Cornell Medical College in the fall of 1997. In the fall of 1999 she moved her lab to the faculty of Molecular Microbiology at Washington University medical school, where she was promoted to Associate Professor in 2004 and became director of the Graduate Program in Molecular Microbiology and Microbial Pathogenesis in 2007. Her work covers aspects of the biochemistry, cell and molecular biology of C. neoformans, in particular related to its polysaccharide capsule, as well as issues of capsule regulation and host cell interactions.
