University of Cincinnati researchers won a $9 million, five-year grant to work on treatments for bipolar disorder, which affects close to 6 million Americans each year.

The team is led by Dr. Stephen Strakowski, professor and interim chairman of the Department of Psychiatry, and director of the Center for Imaging Research. The grant from the National Institute of Mental Health supports the formation of a Bipolar Disorder Imaging and Treatment Research Center at the UC College of Medicine.

Other research teams members include Dr. Caleb Adler, Dr. Melissa DelBello, Dr. Jim Eliassen, Dr. Paul Keck, Dr. Richard Komoroski and Dr. Susan McElroy (all of the psychiatry department); and Dr. William Ball and Jing-Huei Lee, both from biomedical engineering.
