Paul and the Jenkins lab were awarded the 2018 Rising Star Bipolar Disorder Translational Research Award from One Mind. This award will support new work in the lab for three years. We will use mouse models and patient-derived cell cultures to test the hypothesis that alterations in a protein (ankyrin-G) play a key role in GABAergic signaling defects in bipolar disorder. We will also investigate whether current therapeutic treatments effectively target the ankyrin-G protein. We are very grateful to One Mind for the support of our work!
