Madison Fitzpatrick, BA, has been working in Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders (OCRD) research for the past 3 years. Prior to her employment at the Yale OCD Clinic, she worked under Dr. Fugen Neziroglu at the Bio Behavioral Institute, an intensive outpatient treatment center for OCRDs. She began working there as a research assistant in 2019 and worked her way up to clinical trial research in early 2020. She graduated from Hofstra University with a degree in Psychology, minoring in Neuroscience, in December 2020. In her final semester, she received a grant from Hofstra University to continue conducting research at the Bio Behavioral Institute, titled the Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Transformative Learning Grant. She also received the departmental award for Academic Excellence in Psychology the same semester. Primarily, her research interests focus on the intersection of neuroscience and psychology, and she seeks to understand the underlying relationships between the brain and behavior that lead to OCRD symptomatology, further enriching the treatment of these conditions in the process. In the future, she hopes to continue researching OCRDs and eventually become a doctor of Clinical Psychology, functioning as both a therapeutic provider and a researcher in the OCRD community.
