Enrollment for the family genetic studies of bipolar disorder is closed. Data analysis is ongoing. However we are collecting contact information from interested families for future studies. Please call our research staff at 410-614-1017.
For these studies Johns Hopkins is looking for large families with bipolar disorder and depression to participate. If you have bipolar disorder and a biological family member has bipolar disorder or depression, your family may qualify for our research study.
Participation involves having an interview with a clinician and giving a small blood sample. You do not have to come to Johns Hopkins to participate. All information gathered will be confidential and results will be published in a manner to ensure anonymity. All family members would be compensated for participating.
