Senior Director, DAR, The Scripps Research InstituteBiosketch for Beth Ford I received my DVM in 1982 and completed a residency in Primate Medicine at the California National Primate Research Center in Davis, California in 1984. During my residency I participated in the Masters in Preventive Veterinary Medicine at U.C. Davis and finished in 1986. I left U.C.

Over the past 28 years at Scripps, I have helped develop programs in rodent management, training, animal biocontainment and general safety, cost accounting and administration and a number of other areas that are required in the oversight and management of a program of animal care and use in support of a complex and fast moving research program. I have served on a number of national panels and review committees particularly for nonhuman primate and rodent initiatives. I enjoy the challenges of working with animal care and research staff in a research environment, so far it has never been boring.
