Meet our Team

Our team’s goals are to discover the fundamental biological changes that cause bipolar disorder and develop new interventions to treat and prevent the illness. We do this through the study of the longitudinal course of the illness in people who are diagnosed with bipolar disorder and in healthy control participants. 

Our bipolar research team is a large, interdisciplinary team. Prechter scientists are collaborating with researchers across ten schools and colleges across the University of Michigan’s campus.
