Eduardo Salgado is an IPREP fellow who will be working with the ACT Center on the Center for Mind Body Medicine study. Eduardo graduated from Duke University in 2018 with a B.S. in Neuroscience and a minor in Psychology.
During his undergraduate study, Eduardo worked as a research assistant for Dr. Simon Davis and Dr. Douglas Williamson. Under their collaborative guidance, he utilized Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) scans to investigate early biomarkers of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in adolescent cohorts. He also studied under Dr. Zhi-De Deng in the Brain Stimulation and Engineering Lab (BSEL). He became involved in a project seeking to optimize the efficiency of Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) for treatment-resistant MDD patients.
With his lab experiences, Eduardo hopes to pursue a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience or Clinical Psychology, with the goal of developing research projects that can help directly or indirectly inform interventions for Major Depressive Disorder. When not in lab, he enjoys gaming, trying out new types of foods, and sleeping.
