$6.1 million to expand studies

January 2006

The MOOD-CNS Program, directed by principal investigator Jair Soares, M.D., received $6.1 million this year from the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to study pediatric and adult bipolar disorder. One of the grants calls for research on the clinical spectrum of bipolar disorder, with a focus on milder, less-studied forms of the disorder.

"We need patients for several studies across the age range," Dr. Soares said. "Some studies call for children as young as 8. Patients receive free psychiatric evaluation, and, if they qualify, free care including medication."

The studies will join 10 others conducted by the Mood Disorders Clinical Neurosciences (MOOD-CNS) Program in the Health Science Centerís department of psychiatry/division of mood and anxiety disorders.
Call (210) 258-5365 to inquire about patient eligibility.
