The Special Evaluation Program for Mood and Personality Disorders offers fellowship research in a variety of techniques and areas, including imaging (fMRI, PET, MRS), behavioral genetics, family studies, endocrinology, and pharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatment studies. Our research group is particularly interested in elucidating the underlying neurobiology of personality dimensions such as impulsivity, aggression, cognition, and affective instability with the goal of improving treatment outcomes.
You may select a specific track with primary mentorship by one of the faculty members in the group, but will have exposure to all components of the program, allowing for an integrative experience.
Our mission is to train you as a leading clinician-researcher in the field of personality disorders. We give you the structure and training to help you gain invaluable expertise in the phenomenological characterization of personality disorders. We assist you in developing the full spectrum of skills that help you become an independent researcher.
