The pilot phase of this study was completed in the fall of 2011 and the RCT phase is currently in development. Dr. Occhiogrosso is also the principal investigator for a study of serum lithium and sertraline levels across the menstrual cycle that is funded by the CTSC (Clinical and Translational Science Center) of Weill Cornell Medical College.  In 2011, she was given a NARSAD Junior Investigator Award to study the association between SSRI exposure and signs of subclinical pulmonary hypertension in neonates.  In 2010-2011 she completed the Advanced Certificate Program in Clinical Investigation at Weill Cornell Medical College, a 20-credit one-year didactic course supplying training in biostatistics, epidemiology, research ethics and clinical trials design.  Her long-term goal is to continue her ongoing research on somatic treatments in women’s mental health and borderline personality disorder in tandem with her clinical and teaching responsibilities.
