Yale Medicine Magazine, 2011 - Autumn


Hilary P. Blumberg, M.D., associate professor of psychiatry and director of the Mood Disorders Research Program at Yale, was awarded a $3.7 million grant from the National Institute of Mental Health in March to expand her research on bipolar disorder. Blumberg’s lab will use brain imaging and genetic tests to study bipolar disorder in adolescents and adults. Researchers plan to track changes in brain circuitry as the disorder progresses from adolescence to adulthood and to identify genes related to this progression. The goals of the research are to find new ways to intervene early in the disease process and to develop new therapies based on the age and genetic profiles of individual patients.
