Jon McClellan, M.D.
Dr. McClellan is a Professor in Department of Psychiatry, University of Washington, and is the Medical Director of Child Study and Treatment Center. His clinical research addresses the diagnosis and treatment of early-onset psychotic illnesses. He is the primary author for the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry’s Practice Parameters for the assessment and treatment of early-onset schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Dr. McClellan also conducts genomic research to discover genes responsible for complex neuropsychiatric illnesses. He and his collaborators were the first to demonstrate the importance of individually rare damaging mutations for schizophrenia.
- Formation of Chimeric Genes by Copy-Number Variation as a Mutational Mechanism in Schizophrenia.
- De novo mutations in schizophrenia disrupt genes co-expressed in fetal prefrontal cortex.
- Neurocognitive outcomes in the treatment of early-onset schizophrenia spectrum disorders study.
- Practice Parameter for the Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adolescents With Schizophrenia.
- Spatial and temporal mapping of de novo mutations in schizophrenia to a fetal prefrontal cortical network.
