  • Co-Investigator: Brian Martens
  • Specialties: Psychiatry/Psychology, Bipolar Disorder
  • Type of Study: Observational/Survey

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 Bipolar Biobank provide samples of blood, complete an 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.


Adults 18 To 80 Years Old Who Have Been Diagnosed With Bipolar Type I Disorder, Bipolar Type Ii Disorder Or Schizoaffective Disorder (Bipolar Type) May Be Eligible To Participate.
