The Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) Program at Rhode Island Hospital, which is affiliated with The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, conducts research studies to learn more about the characteristics and treatment of BDD. Our current studies are sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health, the Norman Prince Neurosciences Institute, the Brown Institute for Brain Sciences and private donations.
We also collaborate on research studies with researchers in the Brown University Department of Neuroscience and at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. If you live within driving distance of our program in Providence, Rhode Island, or within driving distance of Boston, Massachusetts, participating in one of our studies may be an option for you.
People who participate in our studies make it possible for us to learn more about BDD, develop better treatments, and improve quality of life for people with BDD and similar disorders.
