Shannon Stott's Biography

Shannon Stott, Assistant Professor

Professor Stott is a Mechanical Engineer that has been working at the interface of technology and medicine. She has an extensive background in microfluidics, optics, and tissue engineering, with a focus on their applications in clinical medicine. As a postdoctoral fellow, she invented the herringbone circulating tumor cell chip (HBCTC-Chip) a device that can successfully capture extremely rare cancer cells circulating in the blood stream cancer patients. Manipulating blood flow for the isolation and separation of biological components has been a hallmark of her work and recent efforts include using nanofluidics to separate extracellular vesicles and nucleic acids from patient samples. The overriding goal of the Stott Laboratory is to use all of these technologies and techniques to improve patient lives through early diagnosis and a greater understanding of how cancer spreads and kills. Dr. Stott has a particular interest in brain tumors and the potential impact of a blood biopsy for adult and pediatric patients.
