Research in the Department of Psychiatry
A Wide-Ranging Research Portfolio
The Mass General Department of Psychiatry’s wide-ranging research portfolio spans clinical and basic research on virtually every major psychiatric disorder. These initiatives typically began as clinical trials conducted in clinical units and expanded to observational and mechanistic studies with notable expansions in genetics, neuroimaging and basic neuroscience. This model of cross-talk between clinical care and science has consistently led to research advances.
Our neuroscience, neuroimaging, and genetic research programs include clinical and translational researchers whose work is informed and motivated by the unmet needs of our patient populations.
The integration of patient care and clinical research has been a hallmark of the Department of Psychiatry for more than 30 years.
