Dr. Dappen began his career at Nebraska Wesleyan University in 1967 where he was a professor until 2003, at which time he became a professor emeritus in the university's biology department. During his time at this university, he also served as a pre-medical student advisor. Now, as a retired biology professor, he has guided approximately 400 students toward their careers as physicians, a fact he considers to be the highlight of his career.
Dr. Dappen is currently owner of Nema-Test, a company that provides information on plant parasitic nematodes. Leading up to these positions, he earned his Doctor of Philosophy in animal parasites from the University of Nebraska in 1971. Previously, as an undergraduate, Dr. Dappen completed studies in chemistry and German.
Dr. Dappen's experiences living on a farm during his childhood ignited in him a passion for science. In graduate school, he was further inspired by the famous parasitologist Harold Manter. He began his work identifying plant nematodes when a former student reached out in need of help because he didn't trust the information he was being given. Dr. Dappen is pleased with his path in life because he enjoys the interactions he has with other people.
Beginning in 1992, Dr. Dappen spent six years on American Baptist Men's board of directors in Philadelphia. He remained a member of that organization and American Baptist Men of Nebraska with three terms as state (Nebraska) president from 1998 to 1990, 2002 to 2006 and 2012 to 2016. He was given the honor of Outstanding Layman in 1998. When he is not achieving great things in his field, he enjoys playing golf. He is married to Bonnie Jean Jurgens and has four children, including two step-children. Dr. Dappen has previously been featured in Who's Who in America.
