Dr. Daniel Geller founded the Pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Program in 1992. At Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), he has collected and characterized a large sample of children and adolescents with OCD and Tic disorders. Among his research efforts is collaborative work with other leading universities and the National Institute of Mental Health for the study of genetics of psychiatric disorders. Dr. Geller is a founding member of the International OCD Genetics Consortium, collaborating with senior scientists from many countries, with the goal of identifying genes responsible for OCD and delineating mechanisms by which genetic vulnerabilities are translated into clinical symptoms.
Dr Geller has explored phenotypic expression, treatment response, outcome and etiological causes of early-onset OCD.
