    Biography

    Dr. Bailer received her MD from the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, Germany and from the University of Vienna, Austria, and completed her Psychiatry Residency at the Medical University of Vienna, Austria and an Erwin Schrödinger Research fellowship funded by the Austrian Science Fund at the University of Pittsburgh with a focus on brain imaging in eating disorders. Dr. Bailer is board certified in psychiatry and psychotherapeutic medicine (with a specialization in cognitive behavioral therapy). She has been an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Medical University of Vienna, Austria, since 2005 and has been the Director of the Outpatient clinic for Eating Disorders and Eating Disorder Research Program at the Medical University of Vienna, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Division of Biological Psychiatry since 2006. Dr. Bailer joined the UC San Diego faculty as a Visiting Associate Professor in 2009 and is an Assistant Professor since 2011; she is co-Principal Investigator on research awards from the NIMH to study neurotransmitter function in eating disorders using positron emission tomography and pharmacological challenges and serves as faculty in the UCSD Eating Disorder Center for Treatment and Research.
