Amanda Martin graduated from Mount St. Joseph University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in 2012 and is now a graduate student in Neuroscience at the University of Cincinnati. Amanda is in a doctoral program (PhD) in Neuroscience. 

She is currently conducting research on CreatineTransporter Deficiency (CTD), the second leading cause of X-linked intellectual disability (e.g., severe speech impairments and cognitive deficits).  Amanda recently published research on this topic. She says the classes that prepared her most for graduate school are: Pseudoscience and Controversial Claims, Research I & II, Cognition and Memory, Biological Psychology, and Animal Behavior.

Amanda says, “If you want to be prepared for the job market or for continued studies while making connections and friends along the way, you belong at the Mount.”
