Schulte, Eva


Eva-Christina Schulte is an MD/PhD who—after having spent her formative year in the United States—attended medical school in Freiburg/Germany, Tenerife/Spain, Hong Kong/China as well as Oxford/UK. After her residency training at the Department of Neurology at Technical University Munich and at the Friedrich-Baur Institute of the Department of Neurology of the University of Munich, she obtained her board-certification in neurology in 2019. She joined the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Munich in 2016 and obtained board-certification in Psychiatry in 2022.

She completed the research towards her MD thesis at the Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham & Women`s Hospital in Boston, MA, USA. Her award-winning PhD thesis in human genetics (2013) took her to the Institute of Human Genetics at Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Center for Disease Modeling at Duke University in Durham, NC, USA, and, for additional post-doctoral work, to the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, USA, and the Wellcome Sanger Institute, Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, UK.

Since 2009, she has been working in the field of neuropsychiatric genetics focusing on diseases such as restless legs syndrome, Parkinson's disease, and psychiatric disorders. In particular, she is interested in identifying new genetic factors that play a role in the development of these diseases and in understanding their biological function. Dr Schulte is co-author on more than 90 publications.

At the Institute of Psychiatric Phenomics and Genomics, she has been co-leading the Clinical Studies Group with PD Dr. Kristina Adorjan since 2020. The group focuses on the establishment and scientific use of large patient collectives and biobanks. In addition, a particular focus of the working group is on the clinical application of genetic data in the context of severe psychiatric disorders such as bipolar and depressive disorders, schizophrenia, and addictive disorders.
