EurekAlert: Database funded to help researchers understand bipolar disorder throughout adult lifespan

EurekAlert: Database funded to help researchers understand bipolar disorder throughout adult lifespan . “Under the grant, [Dr. Martha] Sajatovic and her colleagues, aided by a steering committee of other bipolar experts, will aggregate and standardize data from more than 1,000 bipolar patients worldwide who have been previously studied. But most findings from these studies are based on research samples of no more than 50 participants from a relatively narrow geographic and age representation. By creating a single comprehensive data set, the scientific team aims to overcome these shortfalls and increase knowledge about BD, its symptoms, and changes in behavior at different stages of life.”
