Dra. Analia Bortolozzi Biassoni, MD, PhD
Instituto de Investigaciones Biomédicas de Barcelona (CSIC) - IDIBAPS - CIBERSAM, Barcelona, Spain. Senior Scientific at CSIC and Group Leader of CB/07/09/0034 at the Center for Networked Biomedical Research on Mental Health (CIBERSAM). Her research focuses on study of the neurobiological bases and the treatment of serious mental disorders such as schizophrenia, depression and the latter's comorbidity with Parkinson's disease. Much of her work is aimed at understanding the synaptic disturbances and brain circuits involved in mental disorders using pharmacological and genetic animal models to identify biomarkers and new targets for therapeutic action. She has designed new oligonucleotide-based therapeutic strategies for the treatment of depression and Parkinson's disease. Her research has been funded by the Brain and Behavior Foundation - NARSAD, Michael J Fox Foundation, Instituto de Salud Carlos III and Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, among others. She has published over 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals, cited ~2.700 times (h = 24; Web of Science). Her work has been awarded with several national and international prizes, including the Pfizer Foundation Award in Basic Research category, the CSIC Award, and the joint recipient of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology.

Dr. José De León, MD
Professor at the University of Kentucky Department of Psychiatry, Lexington, KY, USA. His most important scientific contributions to the literature include demonstrating: 1) that the association between smoking and schizophrenia is present worldwide, and may be partly explained by shared vulnerability; 2) the association of polydipsia with smoking and schizophrenia in patients with severe mental illness; 3) that CYP3A4 inducers and the CYP2D6 poor metabolizer phenotype may influence risperidone pharmacokinetics and response; 4) valproate's inductive properties for valproate, olanzapine and clozapine metabolism, 5) that a small number of psychiatric patients behave as ultrarapid metabolizers due to genetic or drug-drug interactions, and 6) clozapine metabolism is influenced by ethnicity (Asians have lower ability to metabolize clozapine than Caucasians) and is impaired during pneumonia, which is particularly lethal in clozapine patients. He has published more than 360 peer-reviewed manuscripts described in PubMed. According to ResearchGate in April of 2020, Dr. de Leon's scientific publications have been cited more than 14,000 times, and have had more than 50,000 reads.

Dr. Emilio Fernández Egea, MD PhD
I'm a clinical academic affiliated to the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge as Associate lecturer and clinically working as consultant psychiatrist to the local mental health services, where I lead the treatment resistant schizophrenia unit. Translating the schizophrenia research into novel clinical care interventions is paramount for me, so I also devote my time to the Comprehensive Research Network NIHR-CRN and the NIHR-HTA funding committee for large UK-based clinical trials. From the research point of view, I initially studied the molecular pathways that links schizophrenia with rest of the body (inflammation, ageing and metabolism) but more recently I moved into exploring factors associated with heterogenity in schizophrenia, particularly the neuroscience of negative symptoms and comorbid obsessive-compulsive disorder. My research has been funded by NARSAD, NIH (RO1), NIHR-BRC, NIHR-HTA and MRC-NIHR, among others.
