Today on the show we interview Dr. Daniel McGehee who was Shannon’s PhD advisor. Dan got his undergraduate degree in Biology at Guilford College and his PhD in Physiology at UNC Chapel Hill. After receiving his PhD he did his postdoc at Columbia University and is now a full professor at the University of Chicago where he runs a lab studying nicotine addiction. We talked about his old life as a sailboat captain in the Caribbean (yes, really), why he left paradise to pursue science, and how science has changed over the years. We hope you like it!
