Susanne Ahmari, MD, PhD

Dr. Ahmari is the Director of the Translational OCD Laboratory at University of Pittsburgh. Her lab uses cutting-edge technologies in rodents, including miniaturized head-mounted microscopes, optogenetics, and in vivo recording to identify brain changes linked to onset, persistence, and treatment of OCD-relevant behaviors. Findings from studies in patients are used to guide animal research in the lab. The overall goal is to discover brain abnormalities that lead to OCD and ultimately develop new treatments to help those affected. This work is supported by an NIMH BRAINS Award, Burroughs Wellcome Career Award, MQ Fellows Award, and NARSAD Young Investigator Award.
