Shannon Terek '17

    Major: Biology

    I am currently a licensed genetic counselor (GC) at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's (CHOP) Center for Applied Genomics (CAG). In this position, I work as a laboratory/research GC where I work with physicians and families trying to find new connections between genetics and disease. Most recently, I've worked with pharmacogenetics and polygenic risk scores. When I'm not talking about genetics, I can be found exploring Philadelphia, hiking, reading, and spending time with my cat.
