The Team

The Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research (CIBSR) at the Stanford University School of Medicine is a longtime member of the NFXF’s Fragile X Clinical & Research Consortium. The clinic is led by:

Dr. Allan Reiss, Professor of Psychiatry, Radiology and Pediatrics and Director of the Division of Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences at Stanford. He is board certified in child and adult psychiatry and has worked with families having one or more members with fragile X, in both the clinical and research settings, for over 40 years. Allan saw his first family with affected family members in 1982. Since then, he has sought to contribute meaningful scientific and clinical knowledge to the field with the overarching goal of improving outcome and quality of life among affected individuals and their families. In his spare time, he pursues his strong interest in space sciences and music.

Dr. Scott Hall is a Professor of Psychiatry and the Director of Behavioral Services and Behavioral Sciences. He received his PhD in Psychology from the University of London and has been a Board Certified Behavior Analyst since 2002. His research interests include understanding the complex interplay between genetic and psychosocial factors underlying behavioral symptomatology in children with genetic syndromes. Scott became interested in fragile X while working on his PhD tracking the early development of behavioral issues in children with intellectual disabilities. His study sample included a young boy with fragile X who would bite his hand when he became anxious, and this led to his long-time efforts to better understand how behavioral interventions can contribute to treatment for fragile X syndrome. Scott is a fan of rock music and loves to travel.

Dr. Tracy Jordan is a Clinical Instructor and Psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. She earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Pediatric Neuropsychology from Palo Alto University in 2019 and has been working with families affected by fragile X syndrome and other neurodevelopmental disorders in clinical and research settings for 10 years. Her research interests include understanding genetic and environmental influences on neuropsychological functioning in individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders as well as parenting stress associated with caring for children with fragile X syndrome and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Tracy first became interested in fragile X syndrome in 2012, when she was working as an ABA therapist providing early intervention services to young children with fragile X syndrome and other developmental disabilities. Whan not at work, Tracy is a runner, a hiker and a practitioner of yoga.
