Dr. Amit Joshi is an Investigator in the Clinical and Translational Epidemiology Unit in Massachusetts General Hospital, and an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He is a molecular epidemiologist by training, with a background in clinical medicine.

His research interests include studying the risk of breast, prostate and colorectal cancers, and gastrointestinal diseases, using high-dimensional genomic  data. To study these outcomes, he has conducted genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and studies of gene-gene and gene-environment interactions on the relative and absolute risk scales. He is also currently involved in studying gut microbial and metabolomic risk factors of symptomatic gallbladder disease and cholecystectomy outcomes.

Dr. Joshi earned his MBBS from B.J. Medical College, Ahmedabad, India. He holds a MS in Molecular Epidemiology prior to obtaining a PhD in Molecular Epidemiology from University of Southern California.
