Bipolar Disorder Studies

Bipolar Biobank for Genetic Research

Do you have Bipolar Disorder and want to help further research?
Become part of the bipolar Biobank.

What: 
In partnership with the Mayo Clinic, researchers at the Lindner Center of HOPE are developing a research resource for bipolar disorder called a Biobank.  Participants in this Biopolar Biobank provide samples of blood, complete and interview and questionnaires, and allow access to medical records.  The Bipolar Biobank will make it much easier to conduct research studies about bipolar disorder because researchers will have access to blood samples, along with patient data from thousands of people, all in one place.

Who:
Adults 18-80 years old who have been diagnosed with bipolar type 1 or 2 disorder, or schizoaffective disorder (bipolar type) may be eligible to participate.

Pay:
Participants will be reimbursed $50 for their time spent completing the entire study.

There is a one-time interview and blood donation required. Read more about it, click here.
