Andrew J. Saykin, MS, PsyD, ABPP/ABCN
Andrew Saykin, PsyD, ABPP-CN (MPI) is the Raymond C. Beeler Professor of Radiology and Professor of Medical and Molecular Genetics, Neurology and Psychiatry, at Indiana University School of Medicine. After serving on the medical school faculty at University of Pennsylvania and Dartmouth, he joined IU as director of the Center for Neuroimaging in 2006. He has also served as director of the NIA-designated Indiana Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center since 2013. Dr. Saykin’s research has been funded by the NIA, NINDS, NCI, NIBIB, and NSF, as well as major foundations. He leads the Genetics Core of the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI). In addition to CLEAR-AD, he co-leads several other NIA-sponsored research consortia including AI4AD and KBASE, and participates in the ADSP PHC. He co-chairs the ADRC Clinical Task Force Cognitive Subcommittee charged with updating the neuropsychological battery employed across centers. Dr. Saykin’s research program focuses on precision medicine for early detection of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and for identification of disease mechanisms and potential diagnostic and therapeutic targets. A collaborative group of faculty investigators and trainees led by Dr. Saykin uses integrative analysis strategies to study the relationship among clinical phenotypes, genetic susceptibility, and molecular signatures in AD and other complex diseases. Computational approaches from artificial intelligence (deep learning, machine learning) and network sciences (brain connectomics, systems biology and social network analysis) are employed by the group to address key questions. Dr. Saykin participates in multiple pre- and post-doctoral training programs where he is committed to fostering the next generation of translational researchers. He is an author or co-author of over 550 publications and is the founding Editor-in-Chief of Brain Imaging and Behavior, a Springer-Nature journal.
