Hi. I'm Michael Castello, and I do a lot of things.


Currently, the lion's share of my time is consumed by a masochistic quest to earn not one, but two doctorates in the form of an MD/PhD. In pursuit of the PhD portion of that degree, I study Alzheimer's disease in Dr. Salvador Soriano's laboratory at Loma Linda University. Within the next several years I will begin the four-year journey through medical school to earn my MD. I try not to think about how old I'll be on the other side.

I am constantly thinking about and questioning everything, and as consequence I research and have opinions on all manner of topics. When my frustration with the world "doing it wrong" becomes too great, I write about it. Occasionally somebody other than myself takes interest and my writing appears elsewhere, including the odd scientific journal.

Thank you for visiting my site in its haphazard under-construction phase. If you've made it this far and want to contact me, I'm on Twitter, you can send me a message, or attach a note to a thoughtful gift. Whichever.
