Andrea de Bartolomeis M.D. Ph.D, received his medical degree and his residency training in psychiatry at the University Federico II of Naples, Italy. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship in psychopharmacology and molecular pathophysiology of schizophrenia with NIMH in Bethesda MD (USA) at Clinical Neuroscience Branch (1989-1992) and at Experimental Therapeutics Branch (1993-1994) where he contributed to develop a novel method for quantitation of synaptic dopamine in vivo in primates, using PET and microdialysis simultaneously.
In 1998 he received from the University of Naples a Ph.D. degree in Methodology of Communication Science.
Dr. de Bartolomeis is currently Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Department of Neuroscience and Behavioral Sciences and Professor of Molecular Psychiatry and Psychopharmacology in the Residency Program of Clinical Psychiatry of the University Federico II of Naples.
He is Chief of the Laboratory of Molecular Psychiatry and he is in charge of the Outpatient Clinics for Treatment Resistant Psychosis. The research interest of Andrea de Bartolomeis include the molecular pathophysiology of psychosis, CNS gene expression modulation by psychotropic drugs, and augmentation strategy in psychosis pharmacotherapy.
He has been principal investigator or co-investigator on several research and training grants as well on clinical trials from public and drug company sources.
He has authored many papers, book chapters and published abstracts on molecular mechanisms of antipsychotics as well as on schizophrenia pathophysiology and molecular imaging of dopaminergic system. He published his works in leading journals including Nature in Medicine, Proceedings of national Academy of Sciences, Biological Psychiatry, Neuropsychopharmacology, MoleculaR Brain Research, Synapse, Cerebral Blood FLOW and Metabolism .
His recent research is focusing on antipsychotics impact on postsynaptic density scaffolding proteins and molecular mechanisms of antipsychotics augmentation by glicine partial agonists.
