Bipolar Research at IU


The study of Bipolar Affective Disorder at Indiana University is looking for individuals who have a history of bipolar illness.  This screening form, which asks about your history of mood disorders, will help our researchers determine if you may meet the criteria for our study.  For individuals chosen for the study, each participant will be asked to complete a diagnostic interview, answer family history questions, and provide a small blood sample.  It is NOT necessary to live in Indiana to participate in this study.
