The UCLA Anxiety Disorders Research Center (ADRC) is located in the Department of Psychology at UCLA in Franz Hall. The ADRC is directed by Professor Michelle G. Craske, Ph.D. The purpose of The ADRC is to further our understanding of the factors that place individuals at risk for developing phobias, anxiety disorders and related conditions, and to develop more effective treatments that have long lasting effects and are cost effective.

All aspects of assessment, diagnosis and treatment are conducted within the context of research, and in accord with the ethical guidelines established by the UCLA Office for Protection of Research Subjects. Research studies at the ADRC are funded by either UCLA Academic Senate's Faculty Research Grant funds or by the National Institutes of Mental Health. ADRC funding from the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) has been continuous since 1993.
