The Schizophrenia International Research Society (SIRS) has named Dr. Jai Shah as winner of the 2022 SIRS Research Excellence Award.

“The Research Excellence Award is given to a mid-career researcher who has shown exceptional research in the field of schizophrenia research and promising research trajectory. Jai Shah fits the bill exactly,” said Dame Til Wykes, SIRS President. “His wide set of interests is shown by his capture of different experiences and methods at Yale, Harvard, University of Toronto, and finally at the London School of Economics where he was a Commonwealth Scholar. His work focuses on the trajectories to psychosis, and their implications for clinical care and service design. This research may have important lessons beyond psychosis by moving from traditional symptom-based conceptualizations of disorders and towards transdiagnostic clinical staging models.”
