Bipolar Disorder Research Projects

Melvin McInnis, M.D., Thomas B. and Nancy Upjohn Woodworth Professor of Bipolar Disorder and Depression, and Principal Investigator of the Prechter Bipolar Research Projects

At the University of Michigan, our integrated bipolar disorder research programs are multi-focused:

  • early onset and detection
  • trajectory
  • outcomes

Bipolar Disorder is known to run in families, but most genes involved have not yet been identified. A person's response to the illness, to various life circumstances and treatment can vary. Through our studies, we strive to make a difference for individuals whose lives have been touched by Bipolar Disorder.
