Dr. Breiter is a pioneer in the field of reward/aversion neuroimaging, psychiatric fMRI, psychiatric quantitative morphometry with MRI, addiction imaging, mathematical psychology of reward/aversion, and multimodal imaging. He organized and directed a multidisciplinary team that localized human reward/aversion circuitry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), and directed the MGH Phenotype Genotype Project in Addiction and Mood Disorder (PGP; http://pgp.mgh.harvard.edu) that collected and analyzed over 3000 scans and integrated the expertise of 80 scientists using a federation-like framework. Through the PGP, Dr. Breiter became a founding member of the Brain Architecture Project out of Cold Spring Harbor. More recently, he was multi-PI of a NIDA-funded project that successfully developed a novel approach to real-time fMRI. This past year, he organized the Concussion Neuroimaging Consortium across 8 Universities with Dr. Slobounov (see concussionimaging.org). Dr. Breiter has a demonstrated expertise in managing large teams for cutting-edge transdisciplinary science and mentoring doctoral students plus junior faculty within such projects.
