    Board Certification in Psychiatry, American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology

    Laughlin Fellow of the American College of Psychiatrists, 2007


    Research interests

    Dr. Alfredo Bellon's current research involves transdifferentiation of human blood circulating monocytes into neuronal-like cells. He is using this model to study how the structure of neuronal-like cells from patients with schizophrenia responds to dopamine, ketamine and other compounds and neurotransmitters.
