Eric S. Eberhardt

Associate Professor of Chemistry

Eric S. Eberhardt joined the Vassar College faculty in 1997 after completing his postdoctoral research at the Enzyme Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He earned his PhD in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research interests lie at the interface of biology and chemistry. In general, he is interested in the molecular interactions that determine the structure and function of proteins. Currently, he is exploring the role that charged surface amino acids play in conferring stability to thermophilic proteins. He has developed a series of structured inquiry proteomic laboratory experiences for biochemistry students that explore stress response.
