Juho received his MD in 2009, PhD in 2012 and title of docent (adjunct professor) in experimental neurology in 2015 from University of Turku, Finland. Before moving to Boston, Juho worked as a neurology resident at Turku University Hospital. In 2016, he was awarded Academy of Finland Postdoctoral Researcher funding, which aims to support the most promising Finnish researchers who have recently completed their doctoral degree. Currently, Juho is pursuing postdoctoral research on combining neuromodulation and neuroimaging techniques in MGH/HST/MIT Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging and BACNBS at Harvard Medical School.
Juho’s work has focused around the brain dopamine system and neuroimaging. He is interested in combining neuromodulation with multimodal neuroimaging techniques, attempting to gain more insight to the human neurobiology and brain disorders. In particular, he is interested in investigating the pathophysiology and potential novel treatment methods for behavioral addictions and non-motor symptoms of neurological disorders.
