Presenter(s) Biography

Martin Paulus, PhD, Scientific Council Chair

Martin Paulus, PhD, Scientific Council Co-Chair

Member Since 2008

Dr. Paulus is the Scientific Director and President of the Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR) in Tulsa, OK. Dr. Martin Paulus joined the Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR) in Tulsa, Oklahoma as the Scientific Director and President in May 2014. Prior to this transition, he had been a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) and the Director of Telemental Health at the Veterans Affairs San Diego Health Care System (VASDHS). Dr. Paulus had been at UCSD since arriving as a postdoctoral fellow in 1986 and has been funded continuously by the NIH since 1997. LIBR focuses on using neuroscience approaches to develop better assessments for diagnosis or prognosis of mental health problems and to develop neuroscience based novel interventions. Dr. Paulus' research focuses on pragmatic academic psychiatry, i.e. how to use neuroscience-based measurements to generate individual level predictions that can be useful for clinicians. Moreover, Dr. Paulus is interested in whether computational approaches can be useful to better develop explanatory basis for psychiatric disorders that can be submitted to rigorous scientific examination. In particular, Dr. Paulus is interested whether individuals with increased levels of anxiety have difficulty differentiating random fluctuations from probabilistic but useful information. Dr. Paulus is the co-chair of the ADAA Scientific Council and ex-officio board member.

Dr. Paulus and ADAA

"Murray Stein told me a long time ago 'I will make you into an anxiety researcher' and I think he succeeded and I am very happy about it too. My first ADAA meeting was in Saint Louis in 2007 and I have been coming every year ever since. ADAA is a natural home for high quality research in mood and anxiety disorders and provides the unique opportunity to connect with clinicians and those affected by mood and anxiety disorders."
