Bill Theurkauf received his BA in Biochemistry from Brandeis University in 1980, and his PhD in Biochemistry from Brandeis in 1988. From 1988 to 1993 he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at UCSF, where he was supported by fellowships from the Damon Runyon-Walter Winchell Cancer Research Fund and NIH. From 1993 to 1998, he was on the faculty of the Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
