Media invited to international conference on bipolar disorder June 16-18 in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH, May 18 More than 1,000 researchers, clinicians and mental health advocates are expected to attend the Sixth International Conference on Bipolar Disorder June 16-18 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh. New research will be presented covering the pathophysiology, assessment and treatment of bipolar illness, as well as on psychobiology, epidemiology and the psychosocial issues that affect the more than 2 million American adults with the disease. Media are invited to attend.

The first two days of the program will consist of scientific sessions, including 10 presentations of late-breaking research. Saturday's program will be geared toward both clinicians and individuals who have bipolar disorder and their families. Topics to be presented include:

  • Genetic profiles and vulnerabilities that may predict who will get bipolar disorder
  • Treatment approaches that reduce suicide in bipolar patients
  • Societal costs and the functional and economic burden of bipolar disorder
  • Ethical considerations for designing clinical trials that involve placebos

A staffed press room will be available on site and media briefings will be held Thursday and Friday. To register as press, please contact Lisa Rossi at rossil@upmc.edu or Gloria Kreps at nbintern2@upmc.edu or call the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's News Bureau at (412) 647-3555. The preliminary scientific program and hotel information are available at www.6thbipolar.org.

As with all previous meetings, the Sixth International Conference on Bipolar Disorder is being sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
