Merav Sabri, Ph.D.
Merav Sabri, Ph.D., joined the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), Basic and Mechanistic Research Branch, as a program director in 2017. She is also the coordinator for the NCCIH Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.
Dr. Sabri’s portfolio includes research and training programs on fundamental and translational science related to force-based manipulations/manual therapies (e.g., chiropractic, massage), technology and methodology development for mind and body approaches, emotional well-being, addiction, science of behavioral change, and SBIR/STTR for mind and body approaches.
Dr. Sabri currently represents NCCIH on the following working groups: BRAIN Initiative Team E (understanding circuit function), Trans-National Institutes of Health (NIH) Point of Care Technologies Research Network (POCTRN), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)–Department of Defense (DoD)–Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Pain Management Collaboratory (PMC), NIH SBIR small business programs management, Interagency Modeling and Analysis Group/Multiscale Modeling (IMAG/MSM) Technologies, Trans-NIH Medical Rehabilitation, the NIH Common Fund Science of Behavior Change program, and the National Science Foundation–National Institutes of Health (NSF-NIH) Interagency Initiative: Smart and Connected Health.
Dr. Sabri’s areas of expertise are in the fields of cognitive neuroscience, including attention, perception, executive function, and auditory processing, as well as brain imaging technologies, such as event-related potentials (ERPs), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Dr. Sabri earned an M.A. in experimental psychology from Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel, and a Ph.D. in experimental psychology from the University of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. She completed postdoctoral training in human neuroimaging at Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, and at the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Prior to joining NCCIH, she was an assistant professor of neurology and otolaryngology at the Medical College of Wisconsin, where her research centered on the neural and cognitive bases of attention and perception.
Dr. Sabri has published on the effects of task and stimulus characteristics on auditory selective attention, focusing on the auditory cortex and frontoparietal cognitive control networks. Her articles have appeared in a variety of peer-reviewed journals, including NeuroImage, Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Journal of Neuroscience, Neuropsychologia, and Human Brain Mapping.
