State of the Art Science. New Treatments.

The Translational Therapeutics Lab seeks to translate our understanding of the brain bases of emotion and behavior to develop rapid-acting treatments for mental illness. We partner with collaborators at multiple points along the drug discovery and development pathway to discover new treatments across the lifespan.

Our interdisciplinary approach involves identifying promising compounds and designing clinical trials that simultaneously provide information about mechanism and efficacy. We utilize multiple modalities (fMRI,EEG, MRS) to understand where and when compounds are targeting the brain at multiple levels including molecules, circuits, networks, and behaviors to produce rapid relief of symptoms.

We are committed to educating the public about mental illness and clinical research.

OCD Research

Our mission is to improve the lives of individuals with OCD by advancing our understanding of and the treatment for these brain based disorders.


Hoarding Disorder Research

We are dedicated to improving the lives of those suffering from Hoarding Disorder by developing more effective brain based treatments.


Healthy Volunteers
