Biography

William currently serves as the Head of Academic Outreach for Mendeley, a research management tool for collaboration and discovery.

Most recently, he did assay development for Genalyte, a molecular diagnostics startup. His work involved developing protein, DNA, and small molecule assays on their novel high-throughput assay platform.

William received his PhD from the Tulane University, where he studied under Dr. Darwin Prockop at the Tulane Center for Gene Therapy. His dissertation is entitled “Investigating the Role of Human Multipotent Mesenchymal Stromal Cells in the Repair of Bone”, in which he developed a model of multiple myeloma in mice and used it to test small molecule inhibitors of the interaction between multiple myeloma and bone precursor cells, promoting bone regeneration and repair of osteolytic lesions.

Specialties:His work at Tulane involved self-guided experimental research on the relationship between Human Adult Stem Cells and cancer. His areas of expertise are bone biology, multiple myeloma, adult stem cells, and development of disease models.
