Dr. Jeremy M. Silverman is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the Director of the Mount Sinai Family Studies Research Center which he established in 1988. He received his B.A. from Oberlin College (1978) and his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from New York University (1987). He joined the Psychiatry Department faculty at Mount Sinai in 1987. Dr. Silverman's major research interests pertain to the genetics of psychiatric disorders and, more specifically, the improved delineation of phenotypes and endophenotypes (intermediate phenotypes) associated with successful cognitive aging, dementia, schizophrenia, and other neuropsychiatric conditions in order to strengthen gene finding strategies. Dr. Silverman is also interested in the identification of non-genetic risk and protective factors associated with these conditions.
