Bipolar Disorder Research Network (BDRN)
The Bipolar Disorder Research Network (BDRN) is a group of researchers and research participants in the UK undertaking research aimed at investigating the underlying causes of bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is thought to affect 1 in every 100 adults at some time during their life and men and women appear to be affected equally. The aim of our research is to investigate how genetic factors and environmental factors (such as stressful life events) interact and influence susceptibility to bipolar disorder. It is hoped that by increasing our understanding of these factors developments may be made in the prevention and treatment of this debilitating disorder.
