Cairns Capstone Lecture, Using Translational Paradigms to Identify “At-Risk” Populations: Sign and Goal Tracking
May 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pmFree
Dr. Martin Paulus, Scientific Director and President of the Laureate Institute for Brain Research, will present, Using Translational Paradigms to Identify “At-Risk” Populations: Sign and Goal Tracking
Dr. Paulus’ research focuses on three main areas:
- Using neuroimaging to develop predictive biomarkers for anxiety disorders and addictive disorders.
- Using computational psychiatry to better quantify the behavioral dysfunctions in individuals with mood, anxiety, and addictive disorders.
- Develop a research pipeline that enable one to translate basic neuroscience discoveries into clinically useful tools.
Dr. Paulus studied Medicine at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz from 1979-1985. He received a postdoctoral fellowship from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) in 1986 to study the effects of calcium antagonists on animal models of mania at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). In 1993, Dr. Paulus left UCSD to resume his medical training and completed his internship at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center/Zucker Hillside Hospital on Long Island, NY. In 1994, he rejoined the Department of Psychiatry at UCSD as a psychiatric resident. Dr. Paulus completed his residency in psychiatry in 1997. At that time, he joined the Department of Psychiatry at UCSD as an Assistant Professor and became a staff psychiatrist at the Veterans Affairs San Diego Health Care System (VASDHS). In May 2014, Dr. Paulus joined the Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR) in Tulsa, OK, as the Scientific Director and President.
