Eric Storch Lab


About the Lab


The main focus of research in the Storch lab is to drive innovation in the treatment of mental health disorders through the integration of academic research, evidence-based practice, and novel technological approaches. Our specific research interests involve the presentation and mechanisms and treatment of disorders, with a particular focus on obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety. In addition to our expertise in disorder-specific research, our studies also include transdiagnostic approaches to key psychopathology constructs.
