Women in Pathology Month: May is Women in Pathology Month. During the month of May each year, the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) highlights the history of women in the ASIP.

Women in Pathology is a community within the membership of the ASIP that is focused on issues that face women in science, and is committed to recognizing women’s scientific achievements and fostering their career development and advancement in pathobiology research.

Women in Pathology addresses challenges for women in science at every stage of career and life – as trainees, as active biomedical researchers, during transitions into career breaks required for family life, during transitions back into professional life as a mother, and as advanced investigators. Women in Pathology provides innovative opportunities for engagement by women in science to participate in productive networking, development of meaningful professional partnerships, and mentoring.

During Women in Pathology Month, the ASIP profiles many notable women in pathology and celebrates their service through leadership, recognizing their exceptional accomplishments as scientists. 

Visit the ASIP website to learn more about some of the amazing women in the pathology field.
