Dr. Sullivan is a Research Assistant Professor at the Boston University School of Public Health department of Environmental Health and the former Associate Scientific Director for the congressionally directed Research Advisory Committee (RAC) on Gulf War Veterans Illnesses. She is the Principal Investigator (PI) on the currently funded large multi-site Gulf War Illness Consortium study that includes 9 study sites and is designed to determine the pathobiology of Gulf War Illness (GWI). She is also the site PI on a treatment trial of intranasal insulin to treat cognitive problems in veterans with GWI, a treatment trial of D-cycloserine to treat GWI and for a PET imaging study of neuroinflammation in veterans with GWI. She was also the Principal Investigator of a study of cognition and structural MRI neuroimaging in pesticide exposed Gulf War veterans. Dr. Sullivan has worked in the field of behavioral neurotoxicology since 1995. She has coordinated field studies in neurotoxicology (i.e., pesticides, methylmercury), neurobehavioral outcomes and the effects of physical stressors and genetic predisposition to disease on cognitive functioning.
