Dr. Hilary Blumberg
What is the purpose of this research?
The Yale Mood Disorders Research Program (MDRP) is dedicated to understanding the science of mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness), depression, and other mood disorders.
Who can participate?
Adolescents with Bipolar Disorder
Adults with Bipolar Disorder
Family Members of individuals with Bipolar Disorder
Healthy adolescents and adults to study healthy brain development
Description of Trial:
The MDRP brings together a multi-disciplinary group of scientists who use a wide variety of research methods in a highly collaborative research effort to study the genetic and environmental factors that contribute to mood disorders, and how these factors interact to affect the brain and cause the specific symptoms associated with these disorders.
In ongoing research, MDRP scientists are working towards the development of biological markers that can help to determine if someone has a mood disorder, and if they do, what treatment might be most beneficial to them.
We hope that these research efforts will lead to new and improved methods for the prevention, early detection, and treatment of mood disorders.
