Schizophrenia spectrum disorders: Treating the brain, and minding the body

Speaker Biography

Dr. Margaret (Maggie) Hahn is a clinician-scientist at the CAMH (Schizophrenia Division), whose research interests lie in translational work focused on the complex interplay schizophrenia spectrum disorder (SSDs), and cardiometabolic comorbidities. She currently leads several clinical trials examining novel intervention strategies for metabolic comorbidity. Dr. Hahn’s work also focuses on elucidating mechanisms underlying the intrinsic metabolic risk observed in first episode psychosis, and whether disruptions in brain bioenergetic pathways could explain the ‘premorbid’ metabolic phenotype in a subset of individuals with SSDs. She likewise oversees a basic science laboratory which conducts cutting edge research examining brain-mediated mechanisms underlying the high rates of obesity and diabetes in psychosis. From a clinical standpoint, Dr. Hahn is actively engaged to translate research knowledge into patient care, including contribution to national clinical practice guidelines. At CAMH, she leads the Mental Health and Metabolic Clinic, one of the world’s first clinics to simultaneously address mental and physical health. Her work has been recognized internationally, and nationally including through two recent Visiting Professorships to Denmark, where she is helping to build a Metabolic Clinic similar to the Toronto model. She was also the sole recipient of the 2022 CIHR and CPA Glenda MacQueen Memorial Award in recognition of top female leadership in Academic Psychiatry in Canada.
