Title: Dr. Kristina Korte Accepted to the ADAA Alies Muskin Career Development Leadership Award Program

We are pleased to announce that postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Kristina Korte, has been selected for the highly competitive 2017 Alies Muskin Career Development Leadership Award Program at the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) annual conference. The Alies Muskin Career Development Leadership Award Program is an intensive mentoring and professional development opportunity for early career clinicians and researchers.

In the upcoming leadership program, Dr. Korte will be recognized for her research contributions during the ADAA conference. She will also be presenting her research examining the the mediating role of PTSD symptoms in the reduction of depressive symptoms in an integrated treatment for PTSD and co-ocurruing substance use disorders. Dr. Korte's paper was recently published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine, which can be viewed here.

As a global psychiatry fellow, Dr. Korte’s work applies what has been learned from the dissemination of evidence-based treatments for anxiety and traumatic stress disorders to inform effectiveness research in low-income settings. She was previously a NIAAA T32 fellow at the Medical University of South Carolina, focusing on the treatment of PTSD and co-occurring substance use disorders. Dr. Korte was also awarded a predoctoral National Service Research Award (F31) from NIMH for her work on the development of a transdiagnostic preventative intervention for subclinical anxiety. Dr. Korte has 29 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters and presents her research at national and international conferences. Her research aims to identify cognitive and neurobiological risk factors associated with anxiety and traumatic stress disorders, the development of evidence-based preventative interventions and treatments for these disorders, and creating novel strategies to enhance treatment seeking behaviors. As a Global Clinical Research Fellow, Dr. Korte aims to adapt empirically supported treatments for use anxiety, PTSD, and substance use disorders for use in low income settings. She also seeks to integrate neurobiolgical methods (e.g., neuroimaging) to enhance the understanding of the neural circuitry involved in the development and treatment of anxiety, PTSD, and co-occurring substance use disorders.

Dr. Korte received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Florida State University and completed her predoctoral internship in the Charleston Consortium Clinical Psychology Internship Training Program at the Medical University of South Carolina. She also holds a M.A. degree in Psychology from Boston University and a B.A. degree with honors in Psychology from the University of Iowa.
