Dr. Dan Iosifescu, a well-known clinician-specialist specializing in mood disorders, has joined NYU Langone Medical Center's psychiatry faculty.
Iosifescu will act as director for clinical research at the Nathan Kline Institute (NKI) in Rockland County, New York. NKI is a research affiliate of NYU Langone. Iosifescu will also deliver clinical care for the department’s faculty group practice.
With the move, NYU Langone hopes to bolster its reputation for diagnosing and managing treatment-resistant depression and related disorders.
"Recruiting Dr. Iosifescu is a great opportunity for us, and it is indicative of the well-regarded reputation for excellence the department enjoys," Dr. Charles Marmar, chair of the Psychiatry department at NYU Langone. "He brings the combined talents of a senior researcher and a fine clinician. Equally important, he will wear many hats for us serving in leadership positions at NKI and NYU Langone."
Iosifescu comes to NYU Langone from Mount Sinai, where he directed the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program. Prior to that, he worked at Massachusetts General Hospital, the NIMH Bipolar Trials Network, and Harvard Medical School. Iosifescu received a medical degree from the Institute of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, Romania.
