My primary areas of research interest are obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders such as Tourette's Syndrome (TS) in children and adults. I am interested in advancing the treatment of OCD through a better understanding of its pathophysiology. During a span of 20 years, I have investigated the phenomenology, neurobiology and treatment of OCD. In recent years, I have focused on developing approaches to treatment-resistant OCD including the study of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS).
A Prospective, Double Blind, Randomized, Controlled Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of the Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (DTMS) for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
The purpose of this study is to see if deep repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (DTMS) is effective in treating subjects suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) who are treated with SSRI medications. To qualify for this study, patients must:
A Clinical Pilot Study Examining Bilateral Inhibition of the Lateral Habenula as a Target for Deep Brain Stimulation in Intractable Depression
The Departments of Psychiatry and Neurosurgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai are currently seeking participants with treatment-resistant depression (TRD) for research assessing the safety and preliminary efficacy of a neurosurgical intervention, Deep Brain Stimul...
Phase 2A Study to Evaluate the Kappa Opioid Receptor as a Target for the Treatment of Mood and Anxiety Spectrum Disorders By Evaluating Whether LY2456302 Engages Reward-related Neural Circuitry
The purpose of this study is to investigate a drug (LY2456302) for the treatment of problems experiencing pleasure (anhedonia) in people with mood and anxiety disorders. The larger goal is to test whether we can establish Proof of Concept (POC) that kappa opioid receptor (KOR) an...
A Phase II, Multi-Center, Randomized, Double-Blind, Parallel-Group Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of RO4917838 in Combination with Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors in Patients with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Despite advances in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), most patients continue to experience disabling symptoms leading to impaired functioning and diminished quality of life. There remains a need to develop more effective and better tolerated long-term treatmen...
Reclaim Deep Brain Stimulation Therapy for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
This is treatment rather than research. Medtronic Reclaim DBS Therapy for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) delivers electrical stimulation to areas in the brain to help control symptoms of OCD. Candidates for DBS Therapy have been diagnosed with chronic, severe, treatment-resi...

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.
