Mood Disorders Registry

Anyone age 18 and over can enroll in the Mood Disorders Registry, now used to recruit individuals for ongoing research. If you do not have a mood disorder, you can still sign up as a control subject!


Thank you for your interest in the University of Iowa Mood Disorders Registry! This Registry was set up by members of Dr. Vincent Magnotta's research laboratory and their collaborators to aid research into psychiatric conditions such as bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder. With your support, we hope to pull back the veil on the underlying neurological mechanisms of these and other debilitating psychiatric conditions.

About the Registry

The Mood Disorders Registry is the result of an interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. Our team consists of researchers from the Departments of Neuroscience, Radiology, Psychiatry, and Epidemiology. The ultimate goal of our research is to understand the neurological pathways of debilitating psychiatric conditions such as bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder.

To be eligible for the Registry, you must be 18 years or older.
