Harish C. Joshi, PhD, is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Cell Biology at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Joshi's scientific interests include tubulin isotypes and axonal elongation, gamma-tubulin and drug-discovery for cancer and neuronal degeneration. His lab has contributed six US-patents and over one hundred research articles. Dr. Joshi is a member of the Discovery and Developmental Therapeutics Research Program at Winship.


Dr. Joshi earned his Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry from the University of Delhi. After obtaining his PhD, Dr. Joshi completed two postdoctoral trainings, one on neuronal cell biology at Michigan State University and one on molecular cell biology at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Joshi also holds a MSc in Biochemistry from the University of Lucknow in India.


Dr. Joshi's research interests include the assembly, dynamics and functions of cellular microtubules, particularly as microtubules mediate chromosome-segregation in mitosis and neuronal extensions during the morphogenesis and elongation of axons. He is engaged with anti-cancer drug-discovery efforts focused on microtubule mechanisms that spare peripheral neuropathies.
