Dr. David Butler became Chair of the Graduate School Fellows, an organization that recognizes distinguished researchers and scholars at the University of Cincinnati. This group represents some of the most experienced and accomplished graduate-student mentors at the university and they are a significant resource of talent and intellect at UC. Butler, an Emeritus Professor, has been teaching and conducting research at UC for over 37 years. He began his career at UC as an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and joined the College of Engineering in 1983. Soon, Butler and his colleagues started working to create the Biomedical Engineering program. He has served as Chair of Biomedical Engineering, President of Sigma Xi, and Director of UC’s National Science Foundation Integrated Graduate Educate, Research, and Training (IGERT) program in Bioapplications of Membrane Science and Engineering. Congratulate Dr. Butler on a successful track of leading the graduate fellows!
