About the 'Australian Genetics of Bipolar Disorder Study'

The international Genetics of Bipolar Disorder Study is aiming to recruit 100,000 participants, with Australian researchers hoping to contribute 10 per cent of the overall study population.

Participation in the study is free and simple – volunteers complete a 20-minute online survey and those who qualify will be asked to donate a saliva sample.

QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute (QIMR Berghofer) is the base for the Australian arm of the international collaboration, with collaborating centres throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

Volunteers must be:

  • Male or female
  • Aged 18 and above
  • Have been treated for bipolar disorder.
