The Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation is the first charitable
organization dedicated to the support of research for the study
of early-onset bipolar disorder.
JBRF has organized a consortium of world-class investigators
from a number of medical schools, including the Albert Einstein
College of Medicine, Harvard University, Columbia University College
of Physicians and Surgeons, and Rockefeller University.
These investigators are currently conducting studies
in the fields of phenomenology, neuroimaging, neuropsychological
testing, and molecular genetics. Because thousands of families have
completed the online screening instruments developed by JBRF researchers,
we have been able to assemble the largest clinical database in the
world of children with, or at risk for, bipolar disorder. This data
informs all of the JBRF research studies. Read
JBRF is proud to be part of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Please designate 12148 (MHAROA) when making your CFC donation.
