Bruce M. Cohen: Program for Neuropsychiatric Research

The Program for Neuropsychiatric Research (PNPR) at McLean Hospital, founded in 2004 by Dr. Bruce Cohen, is a consortium of investigators and clinicians using laboratory, brain imaging, and clinical techniques to increase understanding of the causes of psychotic, mood, and related psychiatric disorders and use that knowledge to guide the development of improved treatments.

A hallmark of our research is combining all of the modalities of study we employ to find convergent evidence on the biological pathways underlying psychiatric disorders. Because psychiatric disorders have complex and interacting causes, this multimodal approach is more powerful than applying single technologies to studying psychiatric disorders.
