Dr. Haroutunian came to Mount Sinai after completing a postdoctoral training program at Princeton concentrating on research in development and in aging. His research interests since joining the Mount Sinai faculty have centered on the neurobiology of Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia. He directs the Division of Basic and Laboratory Science in the Department of Psychiatry, the Alzheimer’s disease and Schizophrenia Brain Bank, a National Institute of Aging program project grant entitled Clinical and Biological Studies of Early Alzheimer’s disease, a National Institute of Mental Health R01 grant and a Veterans Affairs Merit grant on the roles of glutamate in schizophrenia, and is the Associate Director for Research for the Veterans Administration Mental Illness Research and Education Clinical Center. He is also a major contributor to Mount Sinai’s Silvio Conte Center for Neuroscience and the Alzheimer’s disease Research Center. In the past decade Dr. Haroutunian’s research has centered on clinical and neuropathological correlated of schizophrenia and dementia. He has used molecular biological techniques, including microarray technology (DNA-chip) and neuropathological studies to understand the biological substrates of mental illness and dementia. Dr. Haroutunian works closely with his associates and colleagues Dr. Stella Dracheva and Dr. Pavel Katsel and collaborates with many members of the Department of Psychiatry and researchers at Mount Sinai and multiple other institutions in the US and around the world.
