Head of Department/Professor in Pharmaceutical Technologies
Pharmaceutical, Chemical & Environmental Sciences
BSc, PhD, FRSC, CCHEM
Professor Jeremy Everett is Professor of Pharmaceutical Technologies and the Head of the Pharmaceutical, Chemical & Environmental Sciences department within the School of Science.
Professor Everett maintains a strong research interest in structure elucidation by NMR spectroscopy and in metabonomics. He conceived metabonomics, and named and defined it together with Professor Jeremy Nicholson (Imperial College, London), with whom he has a long-standing collaboration. He is a co-discoverer of pharmacometabonomics: which is the ability to predict the effects of drugs prior to dosing via metabolic profiling, and he is a co-inventor on a patent granted in the European Community on metabolic profiling in 2011. He is a Visiting Professor in the Department of Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College.
Professor Everett is the author of over 80 publications and reviews and a co-inventor on 3 patents, including one granted in Europe in 2011 on metabolic profiling. He has an H-index of 24 and has been cited in the literature over 2000 times, not including self-citations with an average of over 33 citations per publication.
Professor Everett consults for both major pharmaceutical and small biotech and research institutes on drug discovery. He is also a member of the Industrial Advisory Board for the EU-OpenScreen organisation.
Prior to his current position, Professor Everett held a variety of drug discovery technology leadership positions at Pfizer, and before that, SmithKline Beecham and Beecham Research Laboratories. These positions included responsibilities for analytical sciences, automated purification, biobanking, chemoinformatics, computational chemistry, ligand-based drug design, curation, management and provision of the compound screening file, data support and management, lead generation by high throughput screening, compound library design and production, indications discovery, structural biology, structure-based drug design and drug target analysis.
In addition to his technology leadership roles at Pfizer, Professor Everett co-led the screening collaboration between The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) at Jupiter Florida and Pfizer with Professor Pat Griffin (TSRI, Florida); he also co-led with Professor Ray Stevens (TSRI, La Jolla) a collaboration on GPCR structural biology and he was a member of the Pfizer / TSRI Joint Steering Committee.
Professor Everett received both his BSc in chemistry and PhD in physical organic chemistry from Nottingham University. He was a Post-doctoral Fellow at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, and a Research Associate at McGill University, Montréal.

School of Science Public Lecture, November 30th 2011: Professor Everett gave a presentation entitled “How do we Find New Drugs? Lifting the Veil on Drug Discovery” which covered the different origins of drugs, how they are discovered, how they work and why drug discovery is so hard, with highlighted examples from anti-bacterial, anti-viral and sexual health therapeutic areas.
School of Science Inaugural Professorial Lecture: Professor Everett spoke on 'Solving Molecular Mysteries: From Chemistry to Medicine' at the University of Greenwich, Chatham Maritime on May 10th 2011. The lecture was introduced by the Vice-chancellor of the University, Baroness Blackstone. Members of the public were joined by staff, students and guests from far and wide, including Germany, Switzerland and the USA.
The lecture covered a number of molecular mysteries before moving on to consider how we can predict the future! This work involved the use of NMR spectroscopy to analyse human biofluids such as urine to determine the profile of metabolites present in the urine. Mathematical analysis of human urine metabolite profiles was then used to determine how a person would react to a drug when dosed at a later time point. This completely new area of science is called pharmacometabonomics and it is predicted to play an important role in the development of personalised healthcare for people in the future.
Professor Everett's research covers metabonomics, lead generation for drug discovery and molecular structure elucidation. He has over 80 publications and patents including two recent, landmark publications in PNAS and Nature on the discovery of pharmacometabonomics. Web of Science Impact Factor: h-index = 24, over 2000 non self-cited citations.
