M.S. in Integrative Neuroscience
"In order to retain natives of D.C., Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) within their respective region, jobs and especially schools throughout the DMV need to express and make it their mission to look after their own residents."
Anthony Arnette is currently pursuing a M.S. degree in Integrative Neuroscience at Georgetown's Biomedical Graduate Education. Anthony is from Howard County, Maryland and earned an undergraduate degree in Cognitive Science from Johns Hopkins University.
Why did you choose Biomedical Graduate Education at Georgetown University?
Georgetown University's reputation and resources grant me the opportunity to learn from some of the most skilled and respected experts in the field of neuroscience. That knowledge is then reiterated through hands-on experience outside of the classroom and into the laboratory. Therefore, I felt as if I was receiving the full package by choosing to continue my education here.
As a DMV Hoyas Biomedical Academic scholarship recipient, you were selected because your application "demonstrated a commitment to biomedical research and graduate studies at the Masters' level." What do you hope to accomplish here at Georgetown and/or what is your interest in biomedical research or graduate studies?
I hope to be able to live up to the title of neuroscientist after completion of this program. I want to extend my prior knowledge of the brain, which encompasses the basics of functionality, structure, and anatomy, in order to dive more into specifics so that I can apply said knowledge in treating future patients with mental health-related conditions.
What is your favorite thing about and/or to do in the DMV area?
I was born and raised in the DMV area, so it is home. I love to explore historical sites and discover hole in the wall places ranging from Baltimore to D.C.
