Alex Charney

Assistant Professor

Bio

Alexander Charney, MD, PhD, is an Assistant Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine with primary appointments in the Departments of Psychiatry and Genetics & Genomic Sciences, as well as secondary appointments in the Departments of Neuroscience and Neurosurgery. He received his MD and PhD under the mentorship of Pamela Sklar, MD, PhD, and Eric Schadt, PhD, two of the world’s foremost experts on large-scale genomics and multiscale biology. He has been the lead data scientist on some of the largest genetic studies ever conducted on schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, including genome-wide association studies, copy number variant studies and rare sequencing variant studies. Currently, he leads several of the largest studies in the field of psychiatric genomics and has established a unique approach to human brain research as the founder and primary investigator of the Living Brain Project. As a physician-scientist specializing in the neurobiology of severe mental illness, his primary goal is to translate genomic discoveries to experimental therapeutics.
