Our Team, Arastu Sharma
Arastu began his studies at Northwestern University and received a bachelor’s degree in Neurobiology and Flute Performance. He continued his studies at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University and received a Master of Music. Fascinated by the intersection between the strong biological underpinnings of neuroscience and the flexible yet abstract features of music, he began exploring the ways music may affect age-related disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and has worked on publications pertaining to molecular neuroscience, music therapy, and circadian rhythmicity. He has previously been a part of the research teams at Weizmann Institute and the Institute for Cell Engineering’s Neuroregeneration Program at Johns Hopkins Medicine and is currently pursuing his neuroscience graduate studies at ETH Zürich in the department of Health Sciences and Technology.
Arastu is passionate about wellness and fitness and loves to explore how aging and longevity can be influenced and improved with an interdisciplinary approach using modern medical sciences and interventions. He enjoys cooking, performing and creating music, and exploring new painters.
