The ultimate goal of our research in the Eating Disorders Program is to reach an improved understanding of eating disorders that leads to the development of new treatments for these conditions. Our current research includes projects in neuroimaging, medication treatment of anorexia nervosa,
clinical outcomes, and endocrine and metabolic disturbances resulting from eating disorders. We routinely seek participants
to help us in these research projects.

The studies listed below are currently actively recruiting participants.

Anorexia Nervosa

Site Principal Investigator: Angela S. Guarda, M.D

Johns Hopkins researchers are conducting a placebo-controlled trial to examine the effectiveness of a research medication in the treatment of adults with anorexia nervosa. Participants will be offered 16 weeks of medication (active or inactive) and weekly outpatient medical monitoring by a psychiatrist. The treatment will be provided at no cost. To participate, you must have anorexia nervosa, be 18-55 years old, be medically stable for outpatient treatment, and complete assessments (interviews, questionnaires and medical evaluations) at intervals throughout the 16-week study and at 1- and 2-month follow-ups. Information gathered will remain confidential. Call (410) 955-3863 or contact Angela Guarda, M.D at aguarda@jhmi.edu for more information (NA_00040741). Click here for flyer.

Bulimia Nervosa

Principal Investigator: Angela S. Guarda, M.D.

We are seeking female subjects (18 yrs old and older) with bulimia nervosa to participate in an outpatient research study examining the relationship between stress and eating. This study requires you to drink a chocolate shake, place your hand in an ice bath, and have your blood drawn. Participation involves an initial 30 min screening and two (approx. 3.5 hour each) morning sessions. You will be paid up to $120 for your participation.
