Later he served as an Audit Principal and Senior Medical Advisor to the  Canadian Auditor General and then accepted responsibilities for rebuilding the Emergency Medical  Response System within the newly formed Public Health Agency of Canada. In this regard and under his  direction, the largest emergency medical response exercise in the history of the country, involving the overnight construction of a mobile hospital, hundreds of doctors and thousands of patients, was 

successfully conducted in Toronto.

His formal training includes a medical degree from Queen’s  University, and post-graduate degrees in neurochemistry and physiology. He has been actively engaged  in applied medical research within these areas for 30 years. 

Dr. Shannon stated, “I am delighted to work with Gemina at this stage of the its development. The past  three years have demonstrated the utility of point of care testing in public health, primary care and home  settings. The Gemina team has a compelling plan to develop a portfolio of accurate and reliable tests with  improved ease-of-use. I look forward to building an active clinical advisory board that will provide Gemina  with insights and knowledge important for the success of its products and technologies.” 

Brian Firth commented, “Gemina’s product development trajectory has reached a stage where it’s  important to establish a clinical advisory board, to ensure that the Company is positioned to make the  best possible decisions when it comes to its product-market choices. We’re incredibly pleased to be able  to welcome Dr. Shannon to the Company. He is an immensely distinguished practitioner with an  extraordinary insight into both national and international public health concerns, including global threats  to public health such as COVID-19. I’m looking forward to working with him to build Gemina’s Clinical  Advisory Board in the weeks and months to come.”
