Student Fellow Alumnus
Matthew Baum is a second year MD-PhD student in the Health Science and Technology (HST) combined program of Harvard and MIT where he hopes to integrate his interests in clinical, scientific, and ethical aspects of mental health. He recently completed a DPhil at the Oxford Centre for Neuroethics where his doctoral work, supported by a Rhodes Scholarship, concerned the ethical implications of the development of predictive biomarkers of brain disorders. Matthew also completed an MSc in Neuroscience at Trinity College Dublin as a George Mitchell Scholar and holds a BS and an MS in Molecular Biology from Yale. During his medical and neuroscience training he hopes to maintain a strong engagement with neuroethics; he currently acts as the student representative to the International Society for Neuroethics and will further explore the intersection of biological risk and disorder during his time at the Petrie-Flom Center.
