Researchers at Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania are seeking women engaging in eating disordered behaviors for a study funded by the National Institutes of Health. 

Women age 18 or older who have an eating problem that involves being too thin, binge eating, or both may be eligible for one of the studies. These studies examine the biological, behavioral, and neurological factors contributing to eating problems.

Eligible participants will visit University City, Philadelphia, PA four to five times over six months. Participation involves clinical interviews, completing questionnaires, and a blood draw. Depending on which study you participate in, you may also complete daily symptom recordings, a body scan, an fMRI scan, or an assessment of resting metabolic rate.

Compensation will be provided for attending study visits.
