Accepted (Fall 2019) into the MD/PhD program at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. Keaven will pursue a PhD in neuroscience, and MD in the field of neurology.
“I spent three years working as a research assistant and then lab manager in Dr. Deirtra Hunter’s MMC Music, Mind and Brain Lab where we studied psychophysiological responses evoked by emotionally charged music in human participants. In my junior year I interned as a research assistant in the Morishita lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. This lab focused on synaptic plasticity and postnatal development of a neural circuit critical for visual spatial attention. This internship led to a part time job as a senior in college, then a full time job for two years after graduation.
Dr. Hunter was diligent in her efforts to ensure I graduated with indispensable practical research experiences on and off campus made me a competitive applicant for professional and academic positions.”
