Collaborative work is of utmost importance. Along with psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, cognitive neuro-scientists, brain imagers, geneticists and engineers, we work diligently to deliver evidence-based treatments and to better understand the causes of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
