Lansdale Henderson

Lansdale Henderson is a 2013 graduate of the University of Virginia where he earned a B.A. in Neuroscience. While at UVA, Lansdale was an American Scholar for the Society of the Cincinnati, a Lawn Resident, an Echols Scholar, an ISI Honors Fellow, and an Elzinga Residential Scholar at the Center for Christian Study. Lansdale has a number of scientific achievements to his name, contributing authorship to an article for the Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics, and an article in review for the Journal of Neuroscience. Lansdale has also been a participant in numerous Neuroscience conferences, where he has presented his own research. Lansdale believes that Christians are desperately needed in biomedicine and he particularly admires Christians like Dr. Francis Collins for their positive work in the field. Lansdale eventually hopes to pursue an MD/PhD, but before that he anticipates that the John Jay Fellowship will help broaden his understanding and sharpen his faith as he reads great and important thinkers in the Christian and Western traditions and as he engages with other fellows both in the classroom and through informal discussions.

Our country needs great leaders--and they are made, not born.

Program costs for each John Jay Fellow are just $25,000 per year and include housing, training, living expenses, materials, and work projects. A gift for a portion of this amount would be a great benefit to Lansdale Henderson and the John Jay Institute.

I cannot begin to express how refreshing and rejuvenating it has been for me, as a European, to have been immersed in the much more generous, positive, hopeful, virtuous and friendly American public spirit and to have met such quality peopleā€¦. May God bless the John Jay Institute, its leadership and its donors richly and refresh them as they have refreshed me. My deep gratitude goes towards everyone who has made it possible for me to be a John Jay Fellow! Thank you!"
