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
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.
Identification of neurophysiological markers of suicidal behavior and impulsivity in bipolar disorder
“What makes this program so unique is that it is ‘longitudinal,’ meaning it will follow patients over a lifetime, predicting the outcome of the illness, predicting what treatments these individuals will respond to, and ultimately, predicting how to find a cure.”
