Dr. Marian Johnson-Thompson is a revered, long-time mentor for countless female mentees who have themselves attained mentor status. As the Director of Education and Biomedical Research Development at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), she sponsored, supported, encouraged, and fostered numerous women in microbiology and in the sciences in general. Her life’s work has directly and indirectly led to the production of female scientists in academia, industry, and government, and her contribution to the pipeline continues to grow exponentially.
