Biography

Francis Mondimore, M.D. is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins and is the director of the Mood Disorders Clinic at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he leads a team of clinicians specializing in the care of persons with mood disorders. Here, in conjunction with the National Network of Depression Centers, the clinical and research team is investigating the longitudinal course of serious depression and bipolar disorder in order to determine what constitute “best practices” for the care of individuals with these illnesses. Current research projects at Bayview include a two-year study to identify genetic markers that will predict lithium effectiveness in patients with bipolar disorder and a study evaluating the clinical usefulness of a test predicting which psychotropic medications will be most effective and best-tolerated for the treatment of depression.   

Der. Mondimore is the author or five books on mental heath issues that are written for general audiences that have been translated into five languages. They include Bipolar Disorder, A Guide for Patients and Families, now in it's third edition (2014) and, with co-author Patrick Kelly, M.D., Borderline Personality Disorder, New Reasons for Hope. All are published by the Johns Hopkins University Press.
