        Carl E. Fulwiler, M.D., Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and Director of its Center for Mental Health Services Research, a Research Center of Excellence for the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health. He is also Director of the Mental Health Agency Research Network. He is board-certified in Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine and received a Ph.D. in Neuroscience. Combining health services research with neuroimaging, his work has focused on developing and evaluating services for individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders, and on mindfulness-based interventions for wellness. He has received professional training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression (MBCT). Dr. Fulwiler is currently conducting an NIH-funded study using neuroimaging to understand the impact of MBSR on neural mechanisms of emotion regulation and health behaviors involved in successful weight loss.
