About Anand

Anand Mattay, M.D. is an Investigator and Director of the Neuroimaging Core Facility at the Lieber Institute. Dr. Mattay’s research efforts have been focused on studying individual gene effects on brain structure and information processing using MRI methods in normal volunteers across the aging cycle and in patients with neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease. He is also exploring the utility of functional brain imaging in pharmacogenomics by investigating the effects of monoamines on brain circuits subserving higher cognitive function and emotion processing, and variations in genes that affect the neurotransmitters involved in these circuits. He is board certified in both Neurology and Nuclear Medicine. Following residencies in Neurology at the Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University and in Nuclear Medicine at George Washington University, he did a two-year fellowship in neuroimaging with emphasis on Magnetic Resonance Imaging methods in the Laboratory of Diagnostic Radiology Research at the NIH. Prior to coming to LIBD, Dr. Mattay served as the Director of the Neuroimaging Core Facility of the Genes, Cognition and Psychosis Program at the NIMH. In this role, he was responsible for coordinating the research efforts of the entire group, including supervision of protocols and the application of technology upgrades to the group’s research portfolio. During his tenure at the NIH, Dr. Mattay has been the recipient of multiple USPHS Staff Recognition awards in recognition and appreciation of sustained high quality work performance.
