Biography

    Dr. Grice is Director of the OCD and Related Disorders Clinical and Research Program and Associate Director of the Tics and Tourette’s Clinical and Research Program, both within the Division of Tics, OCD and Related Disorders (DTOR) in the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM). She completed clinical and research training in child psychiatry at the Yale Child Study Center (NIH Research Training Program in Childhood Neurobiological Disorders). Before joining the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in Fall 2013 she was an Associate Professor at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute and she was director of the Tic, Tourette and Related Disorder Clinic at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. Dr. Grice endorses a multi-disciplinary approach to investigating, understanding and treating tics, Tourette disorder and OCD. She brings scientific expertise to the clinic and clinical acumen to the research bench. Dr. Grice has an active research program that focuses on the phenomenology, genetics and biology of tic disorders, OCD and autism spectrum disorders. Dr. Grice is completing advanced study for a Masters of Science in Bioethics at Columbia University.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Grice did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2012 and/or 2013: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website at http://icahn.mssm.edu/about-us/services-and-resources/faculty-resources/handbooks-and-policies/faculty-handbook. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
