An active clinician, teacher, and researcher, Dr. Lyketsos was the founding director of the Johns Hopkins Neuropsychiatry Service, which he led for over a decade. He developed one of the largest and most successful academic neuropsychiatry programs in the USA with special expertise in dementia and traumatic brain injury. Prior to assuming leadership position at Johns Hopkins Bayview, he was and co-director of the Johns Hopkins Division of Geriatric Psychiatry and Neuropsychiatry. He has held a joint faculty appointment at the Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health since 1994.

A world expert in the care and treatment of patients with Alzheimers and related dementias (AD), he has carried out pioneering work on the epidemiology and treatment of neuropsychiatric features of AD. His team is developing biomarkers to accelerate treatment development for AD and other forms of brain injury while designing and implementing innovative clinical trials. He leads efforts to ensure the provision of state of the art Dementia Care for people with dementia in the community. Dr. Lyketsos co-leads a Hopkins-wide effort to advance recovery of the wounded warrior and his family. He also serves on the NFL Players Association Mackey-White Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Committee for which he Chairs the Long-Term Outcomes subcommittee. In June 2010 he was Conference Chair of Traumatic Brain injury in Professional Football: An Evidence-Based Perspective sponsored by NFL.

As the Chair of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine Task Force on Subspecialization, Dr. Lyketsos was instrumental in the 2003 recognition by the American Board of Medical Specialties of the newest psychiatric subspecialty, Psychosomatic Medicine. This rapidly expanding subspecialty is focused on psychiatric aspects of complex medically ill, typically patients with chronic diseases, such as brain injury, where the psychiatric condition is affecting medical care and outcomes. more
