Spot Depression

last modified Jun 10, 2016 11:54 AM

Prof Sabine Bahn and her group at the Cambridge Centre for Neuropsychiatric Research have launched a study to identify signs of depression and bipolar disorder by measuring changes of certain molecules (biomarkers) that can be detected in dried blood spots.  Their goal is to use these biomarkers to develop a diagnostic test to enable early treatment, which can lead to better patient outcomes. 

They are looking for volunteers to participate in this study who have been previously diagnosed with depression or bipolar disorder, or who feel well and have not been diagnosed with any psychiatric disorder. As a participant, they will ask you to answer a simple questionnaire and provide a dried blood spot using a kit that will be mailed to your address.  All samples and personal data will be anonymized and strictly confidential. You will be able to withdraw from the study at any time.

If you would like to participate in this study, please visit www.spot-depression.org. We will update this page regularly with news about the study, along with our Twitter (@Bahn_lab) and Facebook pages.
