Tox Path Textbook Prize Winners at the Society of Toxicologic Pathology (STP) Trainee Mixer
EPL awarded two copies of a textbook, Toxicologic Pathology: Nonclinical Safety Assessment, as prizes at the Trainee Mixer during the 2015 ACVP/ASVCP/STP Combined Annual Meeting in Minneapolis. We are happy to announce that Renee Girens and Shannon Roff were the winners of the textbooks.
Renee Girens received her Bachelor and Masters degrees at Missouri State University and is currently a second year veterinary student at the University of Missouri with interests in anatomic pathology and laboratory animal pathology. Prior to veterinary school, she was a faculty member in the Biomedical Sciences department at Missouri State where she conducted research involving exercise physiology and Alzheimer’s disease.
Shannon Roff is currently the first combined Anatomic Pathology resident and PhD candidate in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Pathology at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. Her PhD work with the Yamamoto laboratory focuses on the development of a T cell-based HIV vaccine using FIV/cats as an animal model. Prior to her time at the University of Florida, Shannon held several research positions at academic, government, and corporate institutions where she worked on various translational projects including models of drug addiction, toxicology and safety assessment, gene therapy and most recently antibody-based targeted cancer therapeutics.
EPL is proud to continue its support of the education and continuing development of future toxicologic pathologists. Congratulations to the winners!
