Carol Mathews, M.D.

Associate Professor in Residence

Department of Psychiatry

Program for Genetics & Epidemiology

of Neuropsychiatric Symptoms

University of California – San Francisco

Dr. Mathews’ research is focused on how genes, environment, and culture interact to influence the development and expression of neuropsychiatric symptoms/syndromes, including anxiety, resilience, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), compulsive hoarding, tic disorders, including Tourette Syndrome (TS), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). These disorders are common, usually begin in childhood, and are frequently co-morbid with one another. In addition, there is some evidence that they may have overlapping etiologies.

Support for this program was made possible by the cooperative agreement award number 1U38DD000727-02 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the national Tourette Syndrome Association. The views expressed in written conference materials or publications and by speakers and moderators do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of Health and Human Services, nor does mention of trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government or the Tourette Syndrome Association.
