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.

Contact our research team by phone or email. In order to determine your eligibility, we will conduct a 15 minute phone interview with you. Any information shared with our research staff will remain confidential.
