Dr. Darlene Dixon
President-Elect of STP (2021-22)
“In veterinary medicine, toxicologic pathology, and toxicology research the greatest joys of my career have been opening doors for others to pass through and mentoring. I have mentored wonderful trainees from the US and from all corners of the world who have become great research scientists, physicians, physician scientists, pharmacists, veterinary pathologists, toxicologists, and practicing veterinarians. I have equally taken pride in motivating and exposing undergraduate students from underrepresented groups to opportunities and career paths in the sciences and biomedical research. Sharing the joys of research as a veterinary pathologist and allowing early career scientists to become creative researchers in toxicologic pathology has given me great fulfillment. My life power words are ‘Positive, Peaceful, and Productive.’ My words of wisdom are, ‘Always strive to be Positive despite the negatives, Peaceful amid turmoil, and Productive in the face of many distractions.’”
