Dr. Doukas to Retire from Faculty

The Temple University School of Pharmacy announces the retirement of Peter Doukas, PhD from his position as Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences effective January 31, 2022. Dr. Doukas has been a faculty member since 1969, immediately after he completed the School’s doctoral program in Medicinal Chemistry.

Dr. Doukas previously stepped down as Dean of the School after a 29-year term, first as Acting Dean from 1990-1993 and then as Dean from 1993-2019. Read more about his career as Dean.

Notably, between June 1970-July 1971, Dr. Doukas spent a postdoctoral year studying in Germany and Holland through the support of Dean Alfred N. Martin and Temple University who provided the financial means for this opportunity as part of his faculty position.

Dr. Doukas commented:

“Most of my life’s major transitions have occurred during the arc of time defined by my association with this institution. It afforded opportunities and financial stability that could never have been dreamed of during my formative years. I have been privileged to engage thousands of outstanding individuals who strove to transcend their historical circumstances through education at TUSP, in partnership with those dedicated faculty and staff that formed the intellectual and spiritual foundation of this great school.” 

Please join the School in extending eternal gratitude and best wishes to Dr. Doukas.
