Manu Suresh Sharma, MD
Staff Psychiatrist at William W Backus Hospital
I am a clinical psychiatrist by training with research experience in cognitive neuroscience. I have a special research interest in understanding the biological underpinnings of psychotic spectrum disorders and using this knowledge to improve treatment outcomes. In the past I have used various neuroimaging and neuro-stimulation (TMS and TDCS) methods to understand cortical functioning in patients with psychotic spectrum disorders. I have a passion for transforming basic science discoveries into clinical interventions for improving diagnosis and management of psychiatric patients. A more recent interest is trying to use language dysfunction as a biological marker for measuring and remotely monitoring the severity of symptoms in patients with psychotic spectrum disorder. I have a strong foundation in clinical psychiatry along with a broad knowledge base in neuroscience and statistics including machine learning.
