Shannon Fischer

Shannon came to Boston after too many years at the lab bench topped with a stint in science and medical writing at Boston University. Her favorite part of the brain is the hypothalamus and she's looking forward to the time when she can fly her car to work (she's thinking no later than 2017). Fischer loves to blog about science, geekery, innovation, medicine and anything else she can think of for her weekly Geek Beat column.
