Karin Borgmann-Winter, MD

Assistant Professor of Psychiatry
Department of Psychiatry Faculty Bio

Dr. Borgmann-Winter received her MD at the Medical College of Pennsylvania. She completed her residency in Psychiatry and her fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at MCP-Hahneman School of Medicine. She subsequently completed a post-doctoral research fellowship in Neuropsychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Borgmann-Winter is associate director of the Neuropsychiatric Signal Transduction Program within the Center for Neurobiology and Behavior in the Department of Psychiatry. This laboratory program emphasizes the development of new research paradigms that address clinically relevant questions in psychiatric illnesses from molecular and cell biological perspectives. The program includes the application of these perspectives to the examination of neurodevelopmental effects of psychiatric medications in children and adolescents. Dr. Borgmann-Winter uses the the olfactory epithelial biopsy approach to investigate intracellular molecular processes associated with the pathophysiology and treatment neurodevelopmental disorders and psychotic disorders. Her research has been supported by the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression, and the McCabe Foundation.
