Stanford Accelerated Intelligent Neuromodulation Therapy
You’re invited to join the Clinical TMS Society for this installment of our Grand Rounds Webinar Series: Stanford Accelerated Intelligent Neuromodulation Therapy
1. Introduce the concept of interventional psychiatry and the history of therapeutic brain stimulation in psychiatry.
2. Establish parallels between current approaches in psychiatry with those employed by neurologists, cardiologists, and radiologists.
3. Discuss a framework for further development of novel therapeutics for treatment-resistant psychiatric conditions.
Date: Tuesday, February 4, 2020
Time: 8:00 pm EST, 5:00 pm PST

Speaker: Nolan Williams, MD
Dr. Williams is an Assistant Professor within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Director of the Stanford Brain Stimulation Lab. Dr. Williams has a broad background in neuropsychiatry and is double board-certified in both neurology and psychiatry. In addition, he has specific training and clinical expertise in the development of brain stimulation methodologies under Mark George, MD. Themes of his work include (a) examining the use of spaced learning theory in the application of neurostimulation techniques, (b) development and mechanistic understanding of rapid-acting antidepressants, and (c) identifying objective biomarkers that predict neuromodulation responses in treatment-resistant neuropsychiatric conditions. He has published papers in high impact peer-reviewed journals including Brain, American Journal of Psychiatry, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. He has also contributed to two reviews related to novel therapeutics for neuropsychiatric conditions that have been published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation and Current Opinion in Neurobiology, which are both highly cited. Results from his studies have gained widespread attention in journals such as Science and New England Journal of Medicine Journal Watch as well as in the popular press and have been featured in various news sources including Time, Smithsonian, and Newsweek. Dr. Williams received two NARSAD Young Investigator Awards in 2016 and 2018 along with the 2019 Gerald R. Klerman Award. He started the Stanford Brain Stimulation Lab in 2015. He has received several merit-based travel awards to attend and present at the annual meetings for American College of Neuropharmacology, Society of Biological Psychiatry, the American Academy of Neurology and the American Neuropsychiatric Association.
