Dr. Angela's Fang's research aims to investigate the social and cognitive biases underlying anxiety and obsessive-compulsive related disorders, to inform targets for treatment. She has received funding from the Harvard University Mind Brain Behavior Interfaculty Initiative, and the International OCD Foundation, to examine the role of oxytocin in body dysmorphic disorder, both as a biomarker of social cognitive impairment, and as an investigational agent to improve biases in social cognition. Dr. Fang has recently been awarded a 5-year K23 career development award from the National Institute of Mental Health to investigate the brain correlates of self-focused processing in patients with body dysmorphic disorder and social anxiety disorder.
