- The Study of Bipolar Disorder is the Study of Humanity
- Prologue: "I personally love engaging and working with people that have bipolar disorder. I think it's one of the most rewarding fields of medicine to study, and I feel incredibly privileged to study this illness" - Dr. Melvin McInnis, Research Director, Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Fund.
In this video, Dr. McInnis discusses how he collaborates with scientists across disciplines to develop new models to understand and treat bipolar disorder. He shares key insights gained from various research projects involving stem cells, mobile technologies, and the microbiome.
Our mission is to inspire scientists, researchers, and the public by sharing innovative bioscience research from the University of Michigan. We use short video interviews and presentations to make the ideas accessible and introduce the people behind the work.
Current and Cutting Edge!
A major focus of Michigan Video Abstracts (MVA) is current and cutting-edge research. A key emphasis is on collaborative and multidisciplinary work, which we hope will motivate others to move in this direction.
Contributions to Knowledge
MVA also showcases the work of emeritus and senior UM faculty who have made substantial "contributions to knowledge" during the course of their careers. We use the interview format to allow these giants to share their insights, experience, and wisdom.
