A Focus on Cognition in Psychiatry
The laboratory of Katherine E. Burdick, PhD focuses on gaining a better understanding of the neurocognitive dysfunction in major psychiatric disorders, including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Several genetic approaches are being utilized to elucidate the biological underpinnings of these disorders and their associated impairment including both family-based data collection and molecular genetic case-control association analyses.
Dr. Burdick is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at Icahn School of Medicine and Chief of Neurocognitive Research in the Department of Psychiatry. She received her PhD from The Graduate Center, City University of New York and completed her clinical internship and postdoctoral fellowship at the Yale University School of Medicine.
