What’s it like to be shot? More to the point, what’s it like to survive a gunshot? That’s the basis for Jooyoung Lee’s research. The 30-year-old is working through the University of Pennsylvania to discover what life is like post-shooting.

    Lee’s research, as profiled by Inquirer columnist Dan Rubin, follows the nuances and trials of the lives of shooting victims — from hospital stays to relocations to living with a bullet in your body.


    Lee’s study concentrates on seven of the 40 shooting victims he’s encountered. The results of his research remain undetermined.
