Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine
University of Pennsylvania, USA
He is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania In addition to his clinical work with research patients. Dr. Lohoff is working with the team at MADS to establish a clinical psychiatric pharmacogenomics program investigating new biomarkers that predict treatment outcome. Dr. Lohoff has expertise in the identification of molecular genetic targets of complex psychiatric diseases.
His research interest includes the genetics and pharmacogenetics of mood and anxiety disorders. His focus is on human genetic association studies with translational aspects using in vivo/vitro systems and animal models to verify identified risk alleles. This includes current investigation of presynaptic vesicular monoamine transporters as targets for novel drug development. Dr. Lohoff is also establishing a clinical psychiatric pharmacogenomics program investigating new biomarkers that predict treatment outcome.
