Mary Phillips, M.D., is the Pittsburgh Foundation-Emmerling Endowed Chair in Psychotic Disorders, and Professor in Psychiatry and Clinical and Translational Science at the University of Pittsburgh. In addition, she heads the Clinical and Translational Affective Neuroscience Program in the Department of Psychiatry.

Dr. Phillips’ research 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. Her research also focuses on identifying the neurodevelopmental trajectories in these circuitries that are associated with the development of such disorders in youth, and the extent to which these neuroimaging techniques can identify biomarkers reflecting underlying pathophysiologic processes that denote future risk for these disorders in as yet unaffected youth. She works in collaboration with basic neuroscientists in translational studies of neural circuitry abnormalities in these disorders.
