Dr. Alon Shamir has completed Ph.D. in psychobiology from Ben-Gurion University, Beer-Sheva, Israel followed by a research fellowship at NICHD, Bethesda, USA. He is the Head of the Psychobiology Research laboratory at Mazra Mental Health Center, Akko, Israel and a lecturer in the Ruth and Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine Technion, Israel. He has published as first author and as part of a research team more than 20 peer-reviewed journal articles and several book chapters. Dr. Shamir laboratory focuses on using state of the art molecular methods and animal behavior paradigms to underlay the molecular mechanism of emotional processing and cognitive function in general and in schizophrenia, in particular. A major focus of Dr. Shamir is on the involvement of the ErbB signaling pathways in the processes of these complex behaviors. In additional to basic experimental capabilities, Dr Shamir laboratory is using several approaches to monitor emotional processing and cognitive functioning to identify polygenic and epigenetic susceptibility peripheral markers for prodromal diagnostic of schizophrenia and other psychiatry disorders. Dr. Shamir is working closely with the center clinical psychiatrists with a goal to improve the patient quality of life, and to pave the way for better diagnosis management and treatment.
