About Our Research Program

Our Research Program focuses on the onset, neurobiology, genetics, and treatment of OCD and related conditions. Our overarching goal is to discover the causes of these disorders and, in doing so, provide the basis to develop more effective and innovative therapies to help families in the future. We have ongoing treatment studies as well as neuroimaging and genetic studies.

We are happy to discuss any of our current research studies, which include the following:
