- William E. Haskins, Ph.D., joined the Department of Biology at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) in June of 2007 as an Assistant Professor of Research. Dr. Haskins received his doctoral degree in Bioanalytical Chemistry from the University of Florida and completed post-doctoral fellowships at the McKnight Brain Institute and Sandia National Laboratories. He worked as a scientist for Genentech's prestigious Department of Analytical Chemistry and as an Assistant Professor of Research in the Department of Biochemistry and the Greehey Children's Cancer Research Institute (GCCRI) at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) prior to joining UTSA. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Research in Pediatric Biochemistry and the Director of the National Insitute for Minorith Health & Health Disparities (NIMHD)-funded Research Centers for Minority Institutions (RCMI) Proteomics & Protein Biomarkers Cores at UTSA. He also holds a position as an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology & Oncology, at UTHSCSA. Throughout his career, Dr. Haskins has focused on discovering novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers of disease, including post-translational modifications.
- Dr. Haskins' laboratory, the Pediatric Biochemistry Laboratory, is a translational research laboratory focused on correlative biology studies and nanomedicines for childhood cancers such as childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia and demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury. Selected publications can be found on Pubmed.
- Collaborators include investigators from: the Center for Research & Training in the Sciences (CRTS), the Neurosciences Institute and the South Texas Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases (STCEID) at UTSA; the GCCRI, the Cancer Prevention & Population Science (CPPS) program at the National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC) and the Departments of Pediatrics and Epidemiology & Biosatistics at UTHSCSA; the Children's Oncology Group (COG); CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Children's Hospital (CSRCH); Texas Children's Hospital (TXCH); and MD Anderson (MDA). Dr. Haskins is also involved in numerous other collaborative research projects with investigators at UTSA, UTHSCSA and beyond.
