Prof Mark Weiser
Prof Mark Weiser
In addition to research, Prof. Weiser is the Chief Psychiatrist at the Sheba Medical Center, where he administers a 150 bed clinical unit, and is Professor and Chair of Psychiatry at the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University. He is also Associate Director of Treatment Trials at the Stanley Medical Research Institute, a non-profit organization which supports research in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Over the past twenty years, Prof. Mark Weiser has performed a series of epidemiological
studies carried out by linking Israeli databases, including the assessments carried out by the Israeli military, the Israeli National Psychiatric Hospitalization Registry, the Israeli Population Registry, a causes-of-death (including suicide registry), and others.  This work has yielded significant knowledge on pre-morbid IQ, social functioning, psychiatric disorders, cannabis and cigarette smoking in adolescents who were later diagnosed with schizophrenia. Other papers have identified the presence of cognitive impairment in persons with psychiatric disorders other than schizophrenia (depression, personality disorders, substance abuse), and indicate a genetic basis for this, and studies on psychotic symptoms in the community and their relationship with schizophrenia. Other studies looked at suicide in schizophrenia and suicide during psychiatric hospitalization. In addition, in the past 15 years Prof. Weiser has been involved in testing RCTs on novel treatments in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, including d-serine (an NMDA agonist), allopurinol, aspirin, oxytocin, valnoctamide (a valproate derivative) and minocycline, in addition to fMRI studies in schizophrenia. He has published papers in almost all of the psychiatric journals, and is on the International Advisory board of SIRS, on the editorial board of Schizophrenia Bulletin, and on the program committee of ACNP. Additionally, Prof. Weiser is the Israeli PI of a large EU grant on first episode schizophrenia (OPTIMISE).  He is currently supervising 5 PhD students in the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University: one person working on fMRI in schizophrenia, another on fMRI in brain trauma patients, a third on the placebo response, the fourth on oxytocin for schizophrenia, and the fifth person is performing qualitative analyses of interviews of adolescents later hospitalized for schizophrenia, or died by suicide. He has received support for his work from NARSAD, NIMH, EU and the Stanley Medical Research Institute. In addition to research, Prof. Weiser is very involved in clinical work, and is the Chief Psychiatrist at
the Sheba Medical Center, where he administers a 150 bed clinical unit, and is Professor and Chair of Psychiatry at the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University. He is also Associate Director of Treatment Trials at the Stanley Medical Research Institute, a non-profit organization which supports research in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, where he oversees the treatment trials. Prof. Weiser is very focused on developing new treatment options in schizophrenia, as well as epidemiological and imaging research.
