Education

Ph.D. 1995 University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, California (Chemistry) Thesis title: Insights into the structure of human fibrinogen. Advisor: Dr. Russell F. Doolittle
B.S. 1988 Beloit College, Beloit, Wisconsin (Chemistry)

Expertise

Dr. Everse received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, San Diego in 1995. His postdoctoral work at UCSD focused on obtaining a structural understanding of the fibrinogen molecule. His work resulted in the X-ray crystallographic structures of the fibrinogen fragment D and the fibrin fragment double-D. He joined the Biochemistry Department in the Fall of 1998 as part of the HHMI Structural Biology Initiative at UVM.
