Josh Salvi, MD

Post Doctoral Research Fellow

Post Doctoral Research Fellow

Josh is a resident in the Research Concentration Program as part of the MGH/McLean Adult Psychiatry Residency Program, arriving here after completing his tenure at the Weill Cornell / Rockefeller / Sloan-Kettering Tri-Institutional MD-PhD Program in New York City. His background is in neuroscience, biophysics, and dynamical systems. He employed a combination of micromechanical, electrophysiological, and computational techniques to find that sensory hair bundles are controlled not simply by their genetics, but by their mechanical microenvironment.
