About the Symposium

The IOCDF Research Symposium is a “by researchers, for researchers” event organized by the International OCD Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping all those affected by OCD and related disorders. Since its founding in 1986, the IOCDF has worked to advance scientific research and treatment, and now offers a range of programming, including grants and an annual research symposium, to support researchers investigating OCD and related disorders.

The IOCDF Research Symposium is now in its sixth year of bringing top researchers together from around the world to present data and discuss the latest research on OCD, hoarding disorder, BDD, and other disorders. The symposium grew out of the NERS symposium originally created by Dr. Christopher Pittenger and co-sponsored by Yale University and the International OCD Foundation. Dr. Pittenger continues to co-chair the symposium alongside Dr. Emily Stern at NYU.
