Dr John Butler is a Senior Research Fellow within Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Dr John Butler did his degree in Biochemistry followed by a PhD in Molecular Biology at Southampton University. This focussed mainly on cellular transport and targeting of membrane proteins. In 2018 he joined the Glycoprotein Therapeutics Laboratory at Southampton University under Professor Max Crispin’s guidance to aid in the production of therapeutic antibodies. His current research centres around the engineering of therapeutic antibodies which will aid the fight against cancer.
