Dr. DePaulo remains an active and sought after clinician. His commitment to teaching and mentoring reflects his optimistic vision of the future of psychiatric research.
His ongoing research includes genetic studies of bipolar disease and unipolar disorder, and combined brain imaging and genetic studies of bipolar families.
In addition to his numerous awards for research, Dr. DePaulo was invited to address the World Economics Forum in Davos, Switzerland, both in 2000 and 2001, about the burden of psychiatric disease on national and global economies.
