The P&G community is saddened by the loss of our friend and colleague, Dr. Paula Koenigs, on November 28, 2016. She was an outstanding scientist who touched many lives around the world with her passion for research and training. We will miss her.

Dr. Koenigs attended the University of Kansas as a Watkins-Berger Scholar where she received a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and was awarded the Clark E. Bricker Scholarship for Chemistry. She attended Duke University to receive her doctorate in Physical Organic Chemistry where she researched the inhibition and photo-reactivation of serine protease enzymes in the blood coagulation cascade. While at Duke University she was the recipient of an NIH Pharmacology Training Grant. Dr. Koenigs worked for P&G for 23 years. Her first 10 years at P&G were spent in drug discovery research with P&G Pharmaceuticals in the area of bacterial infectious disease. Since that time she was involved with technical communication and training in the areas of osteoporosis, respiratory sciences and oral care.
