Joseph V. Brady

Brady Joseph


Dr. Joseph Brady was a professor and director of the Division of Behavioral Biology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His pioneering research spanned several areas of behavior analysis almost since its inception: conditioning of physiological phenomena, behavioral pharmacology, primate space travel, and small-group environmental design. His work in this last area served as the prototype for NASA research and for most other laboratories throughout the country. He established world-class multi-investigator laboratories, first at Walter Reed Medical Center and later at Johns Hopkins (where, incidentally, he was the only non-MD ever to have chaired the Department of Psychiatry). He received numerous awards and held a number of prestigious positions, including editor of JEAB, APA fellow, and recipient of the APA Distinguished Scientific Award for the Applications of Psychology. He was also a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine, and the Scientific Advisory Board of NASA.
