Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has more than 15 years experience in the area of pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics, focusing in particular on psychotropic medications. During this time, Expert's team produced several world-leading papers in the field, and produced the first test for the prediction of response to antipsychotics using genetic information (Expert et al., Lancet, 2000), followed by similar prediction tests for other antipsychotic drugs for which patents have been filed.

Expert's current research portfolio includes pharmacogenetics and genomics of antipsychotic medications, and transcriptomic investigations on the mechanism of action of psychotropic drugs using different strategies, including cell culture models for the investigation of the gene expression profile of drugs. It is expected that these investigations will provide important information of post-receptor mechanisms and reveal new target areas for therapeutic activity
