The University of Iowa

Noah Butler is the Mark Stinski Professor in Immunology and Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology in the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in the US. Dr. Butler’s laboratory uses pre-clinical and experimental platforms to investigate how parasite- and host-derived factors and regulatory and inflammatory cytokines govern the development and function of Plasmodium-specific T and B cells and secreted antibody responses.

Dr. Butler earned a bachelor’s and PhD degree in Immunology from the University of Iowa, followed by postdoctoral studies in Dr. John Harty’s laboratory where he initially focused on CD8 T cell-mediated immunity against liver stage Plasmodium infection.

Dr. Butler was recruited to the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences center in 2012 where he established his independent research program. In 2017, Dr. Butler was recruited back to the University of Iowa where in addition to directing his research program he teaches and mentors both undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
