Eric S. Eberhardt
Associate Professor of Chemistry
Mr. Eberhardt’s 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.
Mr. Eberhardt has received funding from the National Science Foundation, the Research Corporation and the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation. His research has been published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, Tetrahedron Letters, Biochemistry, and Protein Science.
Mr. Eberhardt teaches courses in general chemistry, biochemistry, protein chemistry, and the senior biochemistry laboratory course in macromolecular structure.
