Translational Adolescent and Childhood Therapeutic Interventions in Compulsive Syndromes

The aim of TACTICS is to identify, over a 5-year period, the neural, genetic and molecular factors involved in the pathogenesis of compulsivity. A strong multidisciplinary team of preclinical and clinical top researchers all work together to a better understanding and treatment of the syndromes. TACTICS is a project funded by the EU programme FP7 and combines 11 partners from 7 different countries.
