About the Author

After more than three decades as an active biomedical scientist, Jo Anne Valentine Simson, PhD, now focuses on another love: cultural exploration and writing. Currently, she is collecting impressions and perceptions-jotted in notebooks over a busy lifetime-that form the bones of books about human life and culture. The self-help health-care guide, The Bewildered Patient's Whole-Body Health Guide represents nearly a decade of writing for the lay public on how the body functions. Other recent publications include both nonfiction-Korea, Are You at Peace and Russia Revisited-and fiction-Speaking with Strangers and Laboratory Notebook. Dr. Simson's professional activities included teaching medical students, graduate students, and undergraduates, as well as independent research as an author on some sixty publications in the biomedical literature. She received a Fogarty International Fellowship (1987-88) for research at the Biozentrum in Basel, Switzerland. She also was one of several contemporary scientists featured in a Smithsonian exhibition, Science in American Life (1994-2011).
