Science Background

Joshua Sariñana, PhD was born in San José, California. Sariñana's first laboratory experience was at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) where he tested the hypothesis that meteorite impacts started early life on Earth. He obtained his neuroscience degrees at the University of California, Los Angeles and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). After MIT, Sariñana became a research fellow at Harvard Medical School where he studied the computational processing of spatial navigation.

Neuroscience Research

As a graduate student and postdoctoral associate at MIT I worked in the Nobel Prize winning lab of Susumu Tonegawa. My research focused on the role of dopamine on hippocampal physiology and contextual memory formation and differentiation.
