He received his doctoral education at the Institute of Psychiatry, University of London, and trained in family-based treatment (FBT) for adolescent anorexia nervosa (AN) at the Maudsley Hospital in London. At the Maudsley Hospital he was a member of the team who developed the “Maudsley Approach” as a treatment for early onset AN. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Maudsley Hospital and University of London and introduced the Maudsley Approach to his colleagues when he moved to the United States to do a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. le Grange is the author or co-author of more than 150 research and clinical articles, books, book chapters and abstracts. Most of his scholarly work is in the area of FBT for adolescent eating disorders, including the first study of two outpatient family-based treatments for adolescents with AN. He is co-author of two FBT manuals based on the Maudsley Approach, one for AN and one for bulimia nervosa (BN). He is also co-author of a parent handbook for eating disorders in children and adolescents. Dr. le Grange was elected Fellow of the Academy for Eating Disorders in 2002 and over the past few years has held several leadership positions at the Academy.

He is a past recipient of a National Institute of Mental Health (USA) Career Development Award and principal investigator on a 5-year National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) study designed to investigate the efficacy of two psychosocial treatments for adolescents with BN. He is currently the principal investigator on a 5-year NIMH multi site study to investigate the efficacy of two psychosocial treatments for adolescents with AN. He is also investigator on a 4-year NIMH multi site study of ecological momentary assessment of AN, and chief investigator on two 3-year National Health & Medical Research Council (Australia) grants evaluating psychosocial treatments for patients with AN. Most recently, he is the recipient of an International Research Fellowship from the University of Sydney.

He has lectured widely in the US, Canada, Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. Dr. Lock is a past recipient of an NIMH Career Development Award, and a current recipient of an NIMH Mid-Career Award, both focused on enhancing psychosocial treatments of eating disorders in children and adolescents.
