Young Shin Kim, MD, MS, MPH, PhD, is a child and adolescent psychiatrist who focuses on the distribution of childhood onset neuropsychiatric disorders and disruptive behavioral problems, including autism and bullying. Her research examines the genetic and environmental risk factors of these conditions, as well as their interactions and psychosocial correlates. The core of Dr. Kim’s research is built on community outreach efforts for communities in need of services, provision of services and advocacy for children with psychiatric illnesses and their families, and public awareness campaigns. She is committed to demonstrating that delivering reliable, evidence-based knowledge and skills to communities can lead to reductions in stigma, changes in policy, and improvement in the lives of youth and families facing ASD and other conditions. Dr. Kim is currently Director of the STAR (Service, Training, Advocacy & Research) Center for ASD and NDDs, Director of the Psychiatric Genetic Epidemiology Program, and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at UCSF.
