About the Speaker(s)

Dr. Shannon is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine Diabetes Division at UT Health San Antonio. His research is broadly focused on understanding the metabolic basis of human disease, with the goal of identifying novel therapeutic approaches to combat aging, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. Chris completed his Doctorate studies in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Nottingham, UK, using nutritional and exercise-based interventions to target skeletal muscle for metabolic health and healthy aging. In 2015, Chris moved to Texas to pursue a postdoctoral position in the Diabetes Division at UT Health, studying the molecular mechanisms of insulin resistance and insulin-sensitizing therapeutics. Chris was hired as junior faculty in 2020 and was subsequently awarded an RL5 scholarship from the San Antonio Pepper Center to develop his translational research program.
