Evan E. Eichler, Ph.D. is an investigator at Howard Hughes Medical Institute studying human genome evolution, genome variation and their role in diseases. He is also a Professor of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle.[3][4][1][5][6]


Eichler was educated at the University of Saskatchewan and Baylor College of Medicine where he was awarded his PhD in 1995[2] for work on the FMR1 gene.[7]


Eichler is considered one of the experts in genome instability studies,[8] segmental duplication and structural variation.[1][9]
