New York Times And More

I know I keep going on about this but, in case you didn’t all know, a can be a little obsessive and compulsive myself!  It’s an occupational hazard of academia. Anyhow, I thought I would send on the well-written link to a NYT article about our gene discovery because the writer makes the point way better than I ever could.  Maybe this will be more intelligible than my ramblings…

I know this second link may be a bit on the heavy side but some may enjoy and perhaps even appreciate our latest contribution (link below) about a new treatment for HUMAN obsessive-compulsive disorder that Dr Louis Shuster and I developed here at Tufts as a result of our findings in ANIMALS (including dogs).

Usually new medical treatments for dogs originate from prior experiences of the treatment in people. This time the flow reversed and we sent our ideas upstream. Dr. Evelyn Stewart, a brilliant young psychiatrist, put the results of the study together under the watchful eye of last author, Dr. Michael Jenike, a living legend in the field of OCD.  It’s good to have friends in high places!
