Dr Lotan is a senior psychiatrist in the Dept. of Adult Psychiatry since 2013 and a research fellow at the Biological Psychiatry Laboratory since 2010, both located at the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel. In 2008 Dr Lotan joined the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center Residency Program in Clinical Psychiatry, whichhe completed in 2012. During this time, he underwent three years of post-doctoral research training in Prof. Bernard Lerer's laboratory, focusing on devising translational models for studying the cognitive-emotional interface. Over the past two years Dr Lotan has completed a research fellowship at the Oxidation Biology Group in Melbourne. Under Prof Ashley Bush and his team, Dr Lotan focused on the emerging roles of transition metals in neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. During this time, he was involved in several projects, ranging from basic research into novel roles of biometals in modulating protein turnover to translational mouse models and clinical research regarding Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia. Upon his return to Hadassah, Dr Lotan plans to continue working on these exciting projects in collaboration with the team in Melbourne, while resuming his clinical work.
