Lecture "Pharmacogenetic aspects of bipolar disorder"

Prof. Martin Alda, Dalhousie University, Canada

Bipolar disorder is one of the most devastating and costly medical conditions with an enormous risk of suicide. Recurrent episodes of mania, depression and psychosis require long-term preventive treatment.

I will discuss how genomic, neurobiological, and clinical features can aid in clinical decisions that ultimately lead to optimized, personalized treatment
