William Butler

I am a Ph.D candidate in the Department of Pathology at Duke University School of Medicine. In addition to my current training in pathobiology, I hold a M.Sc in Organic Chemistry and B.Sc in Biochemistry.

My research interests are in the areas of cancer biology and glycobiology. Currently, I am working under Dr. Jiaoti Huang where my research focuses on identifying glycoproteins and glycosylation changes associated with prostate cancer progression, including resistance to hormonal therapy and neuroendocrine differentiation. I am also passionate about education in the biomedical sciences and have served as a teaching assistant for graduate level histology and pathology courses under the mentorship of Dr. Laura Hale.
