Bill founded Green Mountain Antibodies in 1995 after moving to Vermont for a research faculty position in Biochemistry at the University of Vermont. A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Bill received a B.S. in Biochemistry from Oklahoma State University and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Kansas. He did post-doctoral work in Molecular Immunology at Scripps in La Jolla, California and a Fellowship in Hematology Research at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Bill continues to use monoclonal antibodies as probes of protein structure. In his imaginary spare time Bill reads crime novels, books about cows, and anything written by Haruki Murakami. Sometimes, when he’s not teaching teenagers how to drive, he finds time to come to the lab after hours to label proteins with fluorescent dyes.
