Head shots of members of the Mood Disorders Research Group


The Mood Disorders Research Group focuses on investigations of bipolar disorder and other related affective and psychotic illnesses, such as schizoaffective disorder and postpartum psychosis.  Our broad aims are to investigate genetic and other factors that may contribute to the causes of these illnesses.  It is hoped that by increasing our understanding of these factors, developments may be made in the prevention and treatment of these debilitating disorders.
