Clinical Research

Working with increasing numbers of patients in our Stress Reduction Program remains the heartbeat of our research. We continue to investigate the efficacy of MBSR with larger numbers of patients through the CFM Stress Reduction Program.  

  • We are currently evaluating the efficacy of mobile mindfulness training for smoking cessation in randomized clinical trials
  • In collaboration with Drs. Lori Pbert and Elena Salmoirago-Blotcher, we are investigating whether mindfulness training can promote healthy diet and physical activity in teenagers
  • Dr. Carl Fulwiler is conducting a study with functional MRI to compare brain changes in people randomly assigned to MBSR or a psychoeducational healthy living class to identify predictors of successful weight loss maintenance
