Joseph V. Brady
Dr. Joseph Brady was professor and director, Division of Behavioral Biology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Brady's 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 to ever 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.
