The Center for Brain Research in Mood Disorders

The Center for Brain Research in Mood Disorders (C-BRiMD) was launched in July 2016 with the support of a $5 million endowment from anonymous donors. The Center unites the efforts of several research groups in the Department of Psychiatry as well as the greater neuroscience community at Washington University to study the biology and treatment of severe mood and anxiety disorders across the lifespan. To develop novel treatments, it is imperative to have a better understanding of the neurobiological basis of these disorders while simultaneously testing promising interventions. C-BRiMD affords university researchers the opportunity to apply such a two-pronged approach to these serious psychiatric disorders. For more information, go to https://mood.wustl.edu/
