Meet Jianwei Jiao

Dr. Jianwei Jiao earned his M.D. in 1994 and Ph.D. in 2000 in China. He had postdoctoral training in molecular neuroscience at the Department of Pharmacology at Sate University of New York at Buffalo. From 2002 to 2013, he had worked as a research associate at the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Chicago. He has published 10 peer-reviewed research articles. He had served as a peer reviewer for the journal of PLoS-One. In 2013, he started adult psychiatric residency training at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Center for Behavioral Medicine.

After his residency training, he was recruited as a faculty member at Center for Behavioral Medicine and Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, school of medicine. His clinical duty is a staff psychiatrist for an inpatient unit at CBM. He will also be involved in teaching and supervising psychiatry residents and medical students. He has received research support from UMKC School of Medicine and Department of Psychiatry to continue his clinical research projects. His research interests are to identify genetic markers for treatment refractory schizophrenia. His ultimate clinic goal is to develop new treatment options, including pharmacological interventions as well as TMS approaches, for treatment refractory schizophrenia.
