With their Biology degrees, our students have had great success in their post-graduate lives following their time in Gallahue Hall. Butler Biology alumni can be found throughout the country, employed at government agencies (such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and the United States Department of Agriculture), major pharmaceutical companies (such as Eli Lilly and Pfizer), and nationally ranked hospitals (such as the Mayo Clinic, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, ranked as the No. 1 Best Hospital and the Top 2 Best Children’s Hospital in the country, respectively, by US News and Rankings). But success is not defined by a national ranking; our alumni enjoy fulfilling careers in many different fields all over the world.
