Prior to joining Mt. Sinai, Dr. Alia-Klein was Medical Scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York where she developed a program of study on aggression. She received her PhD from Columbia University in New York City. Dr. Alia-Klein is Principal Investigator on NIMH R01 and co-investigator on several grants from NIDA. As co-chief of NARC, Dr. Alia-Klein works on gene-brain-behavior modeling to predict anger and reactive aggression in clinical diagnoses as Intermittent Explosive Disorder. One of her goals is to further develop understanding and treatment of anger attacks in psychiatric disorders. She published on the neurochemistry modulating these behaviors and the reactivity interplay of prefrontal and subcortical brain regions during provocation or other challenge. Her tools probe select genotypes and their effects on brain function through application of MRI and PET technology. Other topics of study such as sex differences are also of interest, in particular as they affect anger disorders.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
