Bipolar disorder stem cell research featured in Free Press
Stem cell science was recently profiled on the front page of the Detroit Free Press, in a major package of stories that focused a great deal of attention on U-M research in this promising field. Research from the U-M Depression Center and the Prechter Bipolar Research Program, where Melvin McInnis, M.D., Thomas B. and Nancy Upjohn Woodworth Professor of Bipolar Disorder and Depression and Professor of Psychiatry, is working to understand the genetics of bipolar disorder using stem cells derived from volunteers' skin cells, is featured prominently, as are U-M scientists Gary Smith, Ph.D., Sue O'Shea, Ph.D., and the work of the U-M Consortium for Stem Cell Therapies, part of the Taubman Medical Research Institute.
