Stephen Shannon is currently working on a Ph.D. In biomedical sciences at the Kansas University Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas. He performed extensive research in a neuroendocrinology lab as an undergraduate, studying the effects of brain injury on the development of post-traumatic stress disorder. Upon completion of his B.S at Wheaton College, he worked as a high school science teacher before entering his current Ph.D program. Stephen also has Cystic Fibrosis. Stephen's experience living with CF, education in molecular biology, and his experience as a high school biology teacher gives him an acuity to write and speak concerning the issues surrounding CF to both a scientific community and a broader community unfamiliar with the science underlying the disease and its therapies.
