Areas of Study

Weill Cornell Psychiatry’s research programs build on strengths in geriatric psychiatry, eating disorders and personality disorders, and encompass new developments in methods of studying the brain and mind. Weill Cornell Psychiatry has launched significant technological and basic science initiatives, inter-institutional and intra-institutional collaborations, and developed major research programs in functional neuroimaging, and in basic neuroscience and genetics.

Psychotherapy Research

Members of the Department of Psychiatry are engaged in research and scholarship in a wide range of psychotherapy. Individually and in seminars, faculty contribute to the advancement of psychotherapeutic theory, treatment and practice in areas such as:

  • Psychoanalysis - Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • In-sight-oriented psychotherapy
  • Supportive Psychotherapy
  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy

Basic Science and Translational Research

The basic science of developmental neurobiology explores the elementary processes by which brain cells generate and operate. Discoveries about the way that neurons form and communicate make this field one of the most promising avenues for increasing our understanding of the brain and mind. Genetics research in psychiatry is an exciting, rapidly advancing field that looks at the etiology of disease, as well as works to identify genetic predictors of treatment response to psychiatric disorders. Translational research links many of the areas of basic science to clinical problems.
