Our research is focused on bipolar disorder, with emphasis on neural development. In specific we are interested in how disturbances in the development of neural networks lead to manifest psychiatric illness, with focus on the calcium channel gene CACNA1C. At the moment, we are developing IPS cell-based models of bipolar patients in conjunction with clinical data from patients.

 

In parallel, we pursue register based studies on clinical aspects on bipolar disorder in collaboration with professor Mikael Landén.
