Mood Disorders Center

Our vision for the Mood Disorders Center begins with identifying causes of illness through scientific research in the realms of genetics and epigenetics (the controls over the expression of genes), and environmental factors like stress. We are devoting extensive laboratory and computer-based analytic efforts towards this goal. Knowledge gained of causes will then be applied towards development of new treatments through work in neurobiology and pharmacology. Potential new medications, as well as new brain stimulation treatments, are currently being studied for their effectiveness in patients in a clinical trials center. We then study genetic and imaging markers to these treatments with the ultimate goal of tailoring care to patients through personalized medicine.
