Meet the Speakers
Haig Goenjian, MD, Psychiatrist & Principal Investigator, Collaborative Neuroscience Network
Haig Goenjian is a psychiatrist and a Principal Investigator (PI) who works in a multitude of settings, primarily research. He graduated with a BA in Philosophy from UCLA in 2005, received his Medical Degree from Tulane University in 2011, and completed psychiatric residency at Harbor UCLA in 2016. His current work as a PI entails conducting clinical trials on a vast array of psychiatric treatments. He also does both inpatient and outpatient work. Whether it is from understanding the history of the term Anxiety coined by Kierkegaard to the use of phenomenology derived from Husserl, philosophy has greatly enhanced his profession.
