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 associated with neuroendocrine differentiation in prostate cancer as well as glycosylation changes that occur with commonly used hormonal therapy. 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.
