Brandon Gilliland is a current second year medical student who is passionate about positively impacting others. Prior to medical school, he conducted research for two and a half years as a neuroscience intern in the Seth Tomchick laboratory studying neurofibromatosis type 1 and the effects of Nf1 mutations on memory-related plasticity impairment in the brain. This research position involved conducting olfactory classical conditioning experiments, electrophysiology, fluorescence and confocal microscopy imaging, immunohistochemistry, data analyzation, genetic analysis, and in vivo microsurgery to the brains of Drosophila melanogaster.
In addition to academics, he is passionate about his Christian faith, guitars, golf, and is actively involved with medical missions. If you would like to learn more about the specific trips, please click here!
In addition to my academic pursuits, I write on Christian leadership and life topics. My whole purpose of writing on this website is to amplify God’s kingdom and to help others find the real purpose for living.
The Meaning of “Amplifying God’s Kingdom!”
My mission statement is at the top of my blog: “Amplifying God’s Kingdom!”. I came up with this mission statement/tagline because I felt that it perfectly suited the purpose in life: to show others God’s love through His calling on my life. When that happens, God’s kingdom is amplified!
I chose the word “amplify” because it not only represents the instrument needed to produce a sound, but it is also what happens when we show God’s love to this lost world. We all have a purpose for living, and it is important to find how God wants to use you to make His name known to others.
Let’s amplify God’s kingdom together!
