Dr. Panos Roussos Newest Member of the Center for Dementia Research

New York – Dr. Panagiotis (Panos) Roussos, Professor of Psychiatry and Genetics and Genomic Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai joins the Center for Dementia Research. Dr. Roussos received his medical and doctorate degrees from the University of Crete in Greece and completed his residency in Psychiatry (research track) at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai followed by a MIRECC research fellowship in schizophrenia. Dr. Roussos’s research focuses on the integration of high-dimensional data, such as genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic, using advanced biostatistical methods to identify some of the mechanisms through which risk genetic variants increase the risk for neuropsychiatric diseases. He applies a combination of molecular biology and bioinformatics approaches to tackle these questions.
