Career Summary

Pablo V. Gejman was born in Argentina. He is the Dr. Louis W. Sauer Chair of Research and Director of the Center for Psychiatric Genetics at Northshore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) and a Professor (part-time) of Psychiatry at the University of Chicago. He received an MD from the University of Buenos Aires, trained in psychiatry at Hadassah University Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel, and in psychiatric genetics, as a Fellow of the John E. Fogarty International Center for Advanced Study in the Health Sciences, at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Prior to his current academic appointment, he was a Professor of Psychiatry at "The College" and the founding Director of the Genetics of Schizophrenia Research Program at the University of Chicago (1998-2003), and subsequently, a Professor of Psychiatry at Northwestern University (2003-2009). Dr. Gejman has spent over two decades working in clinical and molecular aspects of psychiatric genetics and has directed some of the largest genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of schizophrenia. Currently, Dr. Gejman is performing functional follow-up experiments designed to understand the biological mechanisms underlying GWAS associations.
