Brain Signatures of OCD: In collaboration with OCD experts across five countries, we are using imaging methods to examine multiple brain circuits thought to underlie OCD behavior. Identifying brain signatures of OCD will provide robust new treatment targets and help pave the way to precision psychiatry where individual brain signatures can help guide treatment choices.
Brain Signatures of Unaffected Siblings of People with OCD: The Center for OCD and Related Disorders is working hard to better understand the brain circuits involved in OCD. As part of this research, we are recruiting adult siblings of people with OCD to help us learn about how the brain makes some people more likely and others less likely to develop OCD symptoms.

Precision Medicine for OCD: In a collaboration with the Institute of Genomic Medicine, the Center for OCD and Related Disorders is looking at the genes of individuals with OCD to see if we can identify genes that may have put those individuals at risk for OCD. This study seeks to identify genes that may explain why an individual developed OCD and to identify which treatments might work best for them.
