About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Milind Joshi and I was born in Florida but actually spent most of my formative years in India. I moved back to the US for my undergraduate studies at Vassar College where I pursued a BA in Biochemistry and was also a 4-year varsity athlete on the Men's Squash team. Athletics have played a big part of my life and I've continued with my athletic interests in medical school by playing intramural soccer and squash with the local club. One thing I have always prioritized are my friends and my relationships with them, both in undergrad and medical school and I spend most of my free time with my friends here.


Some of my hobbies are binging Netflix shows, playing soccer and squash, working out and hanging out with my friends

Research Topic

Protein interactions with viruses 

Why I chose MD/PhD

I have always had a keen interest in the translational aspect of the MD/PhD program. My goal is to find a balance between these two careers as well as a meaningful connection that can tie my lab work to my clinical experiences
