, ,

Gholson J. Lyon, M.D., Ph.D., is a research scientist at the Center for Applied Genomics at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and an adjunct assistant professor of Psychiatry at N.Y.U. School of Medicine. He is a board-certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist. He earned an M.Phil. in Genetics, working with Nobel laureate Martin Evans in Cambridge, UK, then received a Ph.D. and M.D. through the combined Cornell/Sloan-Kettering/Rockefeller University training program. He has published peer-reviewed papers in biochemistry, genetics, pharmacology and molecular biology. In addition to his research interest in neuropsychiatric illnesses, Dr. Lyon is focusing on the discovery of rare heretofore undiscovered Mendelian diseases.
