UCSF and the National Institutes of Health currently fund our exciting research. Specific projects and funding sources are listed below.

Multimodal MRI to Evaluate Deep Brain Stimulation Mechanisms and Symptom Outcomes in Parkinson's Disease 

  • UCSF Clinical and Translational Science Institute/NCATS UCSF Seed Grant
  • Jul 1, 2022 - Jun 30, 2023
  • The objectives of this study are to develop multimodal MRI predictors of Parkinson’s motor symptom response to deep brain stimulation and to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying effective stimulation using functional imaging.

National Institute of Neurological Disorders and StrokeMultimodal MRI to Predict DBS Motor and Cognitive Outcomes in Parkinson's Disease 

  • ​NIH NINDS R01NS130066
  • Sep 19, 2022 - Aug 31, 2027
  • The objective of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of preoperative, multimodal MRI (fMRI, DTI, QSM) data for predicting motor and cognitive symptom response to deep brain stimulation in patients with Parkinson's disease.

National Institute of Mental Health (NIMHTargeting DBS Therapy to the OCD Network Using fMRI and Intracranial Recordings 

  • NIH NIMH R21MH130914
  • Jul 1, 2022 - Jun 30, 2024
  • Co-investigated with Dr. Moses Lee
  • The objective of this study is to investigate the networks underlying OCD and the mechanism of DBS using fMRI and intracranial recordings.
