  • Mary L. Phillips, MD

    Dr. Mary Phillips trained in Medicine at the University of Cambridge, UK and in Psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital, London and Institute of Psychiatry, UK. She received a research training fellowship from the Medical Research Council (UK) to examine visual scan paths in schizophrenia. She subsequently developed a research interest in the application of functional neuroimaging techniques to the examination of the neural basis of emotion processing in healthy and psychiatric populations. She has, in particular, focused on the identification of neural correlates that underlie the symptoms of specific abnormalities in emotion processing in individuals with mood disorders. She became Professor of Neuroscience and Emotion and Head of Section of Neuroscience and Emotion within the Department of Psychiatry, Division of Psychological Medicine, Institute of Psychiatry, King?s College, London, UK in 2003. In October, 2004, she joined the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh as part-time Visiting Professor and Director of the Functional Neuroimaging Program, moving to become a Professor of Psychiatry in April, 2006. In 2005, Dr. Phillips became a member of The American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, and in 2006, was awarded the Nellie Blumenthal Investigator by the National Alliance for Research in Schizophrenia and Depression. Since 2006, Dr. Phillips has been Co-Director of the Brain Imaging Research Center within Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. In January, 2008, Dr. Phillips moved her UK research base to Cardiff University, UK, to take up the position of Professor in Clinical Affective Neuroscience in the Department of Psychological Medicine part-time. Dr Phillips now heads teams of dedicated researchers in the US and UK at both institutions. Dr Phillips has received research funding awards from the Medical Research Council (UK) and the Wellcome Trust in the UK, and, more recently from NIMH in the US. Dr. Phillips is mentor to nearly 20 junior investigators in both institutions, and has authored or co-authored over 150 publications.
