The International Bipolar Foundation has another great webinar coming up on June 6th. Check it out Network faithful!

Join the International Bipolar Foundation for a Webinar Thursday, June 6th, at 9:00 am PST with Dr. Nadja Freund on Modeling Bipolar Disorder through Pharmacological Manipulation.

freundDr. Nadja Freund is a research fellow at the Laboratory of Developmental Neuropharmacology at the McLean Hospital and a research fellow in psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School. She holds a MSc in Biochemistry and PhD in Psychology.

Dr. Freund was recently awarded with a postdoctoral fellowship from the Leopoldina, the German National Academy of Science and a NARSAD Young Investigator Grant. This funding allows her to explore the link between biochemical processes in the brain and behavior. 

The focus of her work lies on developmental influences and mood disorders. Using operant procedures she investigates the role of dopamine in bipolar disorder and is currently establishing a model that could pave the way understanding the biochemical processes underlying the devastating mood-swings in this disorder.
