Two CSU ALUMs NAMED 2018 NIH OXFORD-CAMBRIDGE SCHOLARS
John Shannon graduated from the Honors Program at CSU in 2016 with a degree in Biomedical Sciences. While at CSU, John worked with Dr. Claire Huang at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Fort Collins.
His research focused on the study of candidate vaccines against dengue and West Nile viruses. He also performed research at CSU in the labs of Dr. Kelly Santangelo studying osteoarthritis, and Dr. Rushika Perera examining dengue virus pathogenesis.
Taylor Farley, graduated with a degree in microbiology in 2015. She was inspired to pursue a research career while volunteering at a veterinary hospital in high school, where she quickly realized that she was more interested in conducting diagnostic tests than in being a veterinarian.
Farley is now fascinated by the field of microbiome research and plans to use the scholarship to study various immune responses to the microbiome.
