Dr. David Henderson is a leader in the fields of schizophrenia, medical co-morbidity, and global psychiatry. He directs the Chester Pierce Division of Global Psychiatry and the MGH Schizophrenia Clinical and Research Program (SCRP) and is principal investigator and director of the MGH Global Mental Health Clinical Research Fellowship.

His research interests include treatment-resistant schizophrenia, the use of psychopharmacological and antipsychotic agents in the treatment of schizophrenia, and the impact of antipsychotic agents on weight, cardiovascular disease, and lipid and glucose metabolism. Dr. Henderson noticed a high rate of diabetes mellitus (DM) in his clozapine-treated patients. As a result, he developed procedures for screening and early detection of diabetes in this population. Dr. Henderson focused on metabolic effects of atypical antipsychotic agents, the role of serotonin receptors, and augmentation strategies to reduce or reverse metabolic disturbances.

As Director of the SCRP, Dr. Henderson directs a leading center for the study and treatment of schizophrenia worldwide. SCRP combines clinical care, training, and clinical and neuroimaging research, with programs designed to improve long-term health and quality of life of seriously mentally ill patients though a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach with community agencies. ]SCRP has more than 20 studies and clinical trials and has trained numerous clinical researchers, fellows and residents who have pursued successful careers in academic medicine. SCRP consults in diabetes and weight management (Dr. Henderson’s current research area), psychosocial therapy, first-episode psychosis, smoking cessation and other psychosis-related issues.
