Gen Shinozaki

Associate Professor

Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University

Native of Japan and lover of sushi and sake, I graduated from the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Tokyo, and completed my master’s program there. Shifting my career path to psychiatry, I graduated from Yamanashi Medical University. Following an internship at the US Naval Hospital in Okinawa, I completed my psychiatry residency and liaison psychiatry fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, and became board-certified in both psychiatry and liaison psychiatry.

After serving as an assistant professor at the University of South Dakota and an associate professor at the University of Iowa, I am now an associate professor of psychiatry at Stanford University. My accolades include the Mayo Clinic Psychiatry Resident Best Writing Award and the Best Grand Rounds Award. I have also been honored with the Webb Fellowship Award, Dlin Fischer Clinical Research Award, Visiting Professor Award, and the Wayne Katon Research Award, the highest honor for research accomplishment, from the Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry. Additionally, I received the University of Iowa Inventor Awards and the Helen Johnson Scholar for Informatics. My research is funded by NIH, NSF, and industry sources.
