Joe Dragone, BS

My name is Joe Dragone, I am originally from Richmond, Virginia. I completed my bachelors degree in Psychology with a focus on Neuroscience from the University of Mary Washington in 2017. I am a second year graduate student working towards my PHD at the University of Florida where I am co-mentored by Marcelo Febo and Barry Setlow. Both of these labs are focused on exploring the underlying neurobiology of addiction and decision making. My current projects involve exploring alterations to functional connectivity as a result of cannabinoid exposure, THC or CBD, using MRI, and I will soon begin a study exploring self-administration of oxycodone in rats.
