Toward Neural Biomarkers of Risk for Bipolar Spectrum Disorders and Neural Targets for Novel Neuromodulation Interventions
Please join us on Tuesday, February 22, 2018 as the University of Pittsburgh honors Dr. Mary Phillips and we celebrate her appointment as the Pittsburgh Foundation-Emmerling Endowed Chair in Psychotic Disorders at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Dr. Phillips will deliver a Provost Inaugural Lecture beginning at 4:00pm in Lecture Room 6 of Scaife Hall. A special reception with light refreshments will immediately follow the lecture.
Dr. Phillips is the founder and director of the Mood and Brain Laboratory and the Clinical Affective and Translational Neuroscience Program in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh. This state of the art research program focuses on using multimodal neuroimaging techniques to elucidate functional and structural abnormalities in emotion processing, reward processing and emotional regulation circuitries that are associated with specific psychiatric disorders and symptom dimensions, in individuals with mood and anxiety disorders.
We hope you will join us to learn more about Dr. Phillips's innovative research and her career path, and to celebrate her many outstanding accomplishments as a mentor and research scientist.
