A world renowned expert in the care and treatment of patients with Alzheimer’s and related dementias (AD), Dr. Lyketsos has carried out pioneering work on the epidemiology and treatment of neuropsychiatric features of AD. His team is developing biomarkers to accelerate treatment development for AD and other forms of brain injury while designing and implementing innovative clinical trials. He leads efforts, as well, to ensure the provision of state-of-the-art dementia care for people with dementia in the community.
Dr. Lyketsos has been instrumental in the recognition of psychosomatic medicine as a psychiatric subspecialty. This rapidly expanding subspecialty is focused on psychiatric aspects of the complex medically ill, typically patients with chronic diseases where the psychiatric condition is affecting medical care and outcomes. His interest in traumatic brain injury has led him to leadership roles in military and veteran’s health and collaborations with the NFL Players Association.
Dr. Lyketsos has authored or co-authored over 350 scientific articles, chapters, commentaries, as well as five books, including Systematic Psychiatric Evaluation and Psychiatric Aspects of Neurological Diseases (recently translated into Greek). He is the recipient of the 2016 Jack Weinberg Award in Geriatric Psychiatry from the American Psychiatric Association, the 2012 Distinguished Scientist Award from the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry, and the 2006 William S. Proxmire Award for “extraordinary leadership in the fight against Alzheimer’s” from the Copper Ridge Institute. Castle-Connolly has named Dr. Lyketsos as one of America’s Top Doctors every year since 2001.
A native of Athens, Greece, Dr. Lyketsos graduated from Northwestern University and Washington University Medical School in St. Louis (1988). He completed residency and chief residency in psychiatry at Johns Hopkins (1988-92), followed by a fellowship in clinical epidemiology.
