REDC believes in supporting and conducting on-going research related to eating disorders care and actively participates in collaborative projects across members and with others across the field of eating disorders.

REDC has worked with Dr. Scott Crow (PI, The University of Minnesota) and Dr. Ross Crosby (Co-Investigator, the University of North Dakota) on a multi-center research study assessing course of treatment from residential admission to discharge. REDC will soon launch a project with the Alliance for Eating Disorders and researcher clinicians from adolescent medicine departments across the country to better understand the availability of care options for youth across the country.

The REDC Research Committee maintains an active dialogue within REDC regarding study ideas and collaboration opportunities.
