Butler Completes Laboratory Fellowship at GGC
Kameryn Butler, PhD, of Wilmington, NC, has completed a three-year Laboratory Genetics and Genomics fellowship at the Greenwood Genetic Center (GGC) in Greenwood, SC. Prior to joining GGC in 2018, Butler competed her undergraduate degree in Genetics at Clemson University and earned a PhD in Genetics and Molecular Biology from Emory University.
At GGC, Dr. Butler studied the implementation and interpretation of molecular and cytogenetic diagnostic tests, as well as the development of new genetic testing assays for use in the clinical setting. She has accepted a faculty position at GGC as Assistant Director of the Center’s Cytogenetics Laboratory.
GGC’s training program includes intensive education in laboratory technologies, clinical genetics, and diagnostic laboratory management. Since the program began in 1989, 41 fellows and residents have completed the training and have gone on to practice clinical genetics or take leadership roles in genetics laboratories.
