Thaddeus Pace, Ph.D.



Dr. Pace is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in the School of Medicine at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He is also a member of the Neuroscience faculty in the Graduate Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences at Emory. He received his B.S. in Psychobiology from Albright College, and his Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder. At Colorado Dr. Pace studied regulatory mechanisms of resting and stress-induced hypothalamic-pituitary adrenal axis function in the laboratory of Robert L. Spencer, Ph.D. His work at Emory explores endocrine and immune system function in people who suffer from major depression, as well as endocrine and inflammatory immune changes that result from adverse experiences during the formative years of life. Dr. Pace also investigates the effectiveness of novel interventions that may optimize inflammatory immune and endocrine responses to stress, such as the practice of compassion meditation (in collaboration with Charles Raison, M.D.), and novel anti-inflammatory compounds (in collaboration with Andrew H. Miller, M.D. and Hyunsuk Shim, Ph.D.). Dr. Pace is the recipient of a NARSAD young investigator award, and his research is also supported by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health
