Speaker Jeremy Veenstra-VanderWeele, M.D. is a child and adolescent psychiatrist and the Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University. “The Veenstra-VanderWeele lab is dedicated to helping children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and their families. We are approaching this goal using a variety of techniques, from animal models to research in adults with ASD. The majority of our efforts go toward developing and studying mouse models to understand the relationship between ASD or OCD risk factors and the resulting changes in brain and behavior. We are also working to translate laboratory research findings into novel treatments for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders or related syndromal disorders.”
