Speaker: Mark George, MD

Dr. George is a world expert in brain stimulation, and depression, and is the editor-in-chief of a new journal he co-launched with Elsevier in 2008 called, Brain Stimulation: Basic, Translation and Clinical Research in Neuromodulation. He has been continuously funded by NIH and other funding agencies since his fellowships. He performed early pioneering work with TMS for depression, and combining TMS with brain imaging. After his research fellowship at the NIMH intramural program where he first delivered TMS for depression, he received both a NARSAD Young Investigator and Independent Investigator Award to further pursue TMS research in depression. He has received numerous international awards including the NARSAD Klerman Award (2000), NARSAD Falcone Award (2008) and the Lifetime Achievement Award (2007) given by the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry (WFSBP). In 2009 US News and World Report named him one of 14 ‘medical pioneers who are not holding back’. He has published over 500 scientific articles or book chapters, and has written or edited 6 books. He lives on the beach, kite surfs, raises bees and chickens, and recently gathered TMS motor thresholds in zero-gravity.
