In Memoriam

Darrell R. Abernethy MD, PhD

November 2, 1949 - November 18, 2017

Dr. Darrell Abernethy was a giant in his field. Most recently he served as Associate Director for Drug Safety at the FDA and held appointments at multiple academic institutions and the NIH over his career. Dr. Abernethy contributed heavily to the field of pharmacology and was a career long student and champion of drug safety. He was an ardent supporter of the Sternfels Prize from its inception. Despite being an expert’s expert himself, Dr. Abernethy strongly believed in the ‘wisdom of the crowd’ and that there were individuals from many professions who may be positioned to develop the idea that unlocks another major discovery in drug safety. His absence will be felt on the panel and in the field. To learn more about Dr. Abernethy and all the lives he touched, read his tribute from Dr. Greenblatt in the February edition of Clinical Pharmacology in Drug Development.
