The Research Program serves to study the cause, presentation, and treatment of pediatric Bipolar Disorder (BD). Our central mission is to understand which children are at risk for developing BD so that we can intervene to prevent the disorder. In order to do this, we are conducting studies designed to discover brain and gene abnormalities that are unique to early-onset BD.
