“Data Science, precision health, and the ‘academic’ Odyssey”, Guest Speaker Robert Paul, PhD, ABCN
November 7, 2019

Robert Paul, PhD, ABCN, will be the GSBS guest speaker on November 7, 2019.  He will be presenting “Data Science, precision health, and the ‘academic’ Odyssey”.

Seminar location: LIB-110; November 7, 2019 beginning at 10 a.m.

Dr. Paul’s research program is focused on mechanisms of brain dysfunction in health conditions that primarily impact brain structures located deep beneath the surface of the cerebral cortex.

Dr. Paul’s research team has developed specific expertise in human immune deficiency syndrome (HIV), subcortical stroke, and early life trauma as three conditions that impact the integrity of deep brain structures including the white matter, basal ganglia, and limbic structures. Neuropsychological methods and neuroimaging techniques are primary research methods applied by Dr. Paul’s team to define behavioral and anatomical signatures of brain dysfunction in these conditions. Dr. Paul has a special interest in the application of these methods in resource-limited environments and he has active research programs in South Africa, Africa, Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. He is a member of the HIV Cure Consortium and he works closely with collaborators at University of California San Francisco, Brown, Yale, and Washington University.
