Note Editore

Bipolar Disorder Vulnerability: Perspectives from Pediatric and High-Risk Populations synthesizes our current understanding of high-risk and pediatric populations to aid readers in identifying markers of vulnerability for the development of bipolar disorder, with an ultimate goal of the development of drug targets and other therapies for early diagnosis and treatment. The book provides readers with an understanding of biological and environmental factors influencing disease manifestation that will aid them in defining discrete clinical stages and, importantly, establish an empirical basis for the application of novel therapeutics in a phase of illness during which specific treatments could more effectively alter disease course.

Whereas most of the literature available on the pathophysiological mechanisms of bipolar disorder focuses on chronically ill adult individuals, this represents the only book that specifically examines pediatric and high-risk populations. An estimated 30 to 60 percent of adult bipolar disorder patients have their disease onset during childhood, with early-onset cases representing a particularly severe and genetically loaded form of the illness.

  • Highlights diverse translational methodologies, including functional and structural neuroimaging, neuropsychological testing and integrated genomics
  • Examines molecular trajectories in youth with bipolar disorder and unaffected youth at high risk for developing bipolar disorder
  • Explores the interaction between genomic and environmental influences that shape behavior

The center is comprised of an active research team who specializes in clinical neurosciences (neuroimaging, neurophysiology, cognitive neurosciences, and genetics), as well as clinical psychopharmacology and interventions research. After receiving his medical degree from the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil in 1990, Soares accepted a psychiatric residency in adult psychiatry at the University of Sao Paulo and a research tract residency in general psychiatry at the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic at the University of Pittsburgh. Subsequently, Soares received a brain imaging fellowship with the Yale University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry. He obtained a PhD in medical sciences at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil. Prior to joining UTHealth, Soares served as the Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Center of Excellence in Research and Treatment for Bipolar Disorders at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and as Deputy Chair for Research and Division Chief for Mood and Anxiety Disorders with the Department of Psychiatry at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Soares has received numerous honors and awards, including the National Plaque of Honor, Republic of Panama, the Devereux Clinic Emy Award, and the "Best Doctor Award. He published more than 200 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in the psychiatric literature and has held editorial positions on a number of national and international medical journals. Since April 2015, he is also the co-editor in chief for the Journal of Affective Disorders.
Dr. Walss-Bass is Associate Professor and Director of the University of Texas Health Brain Collection for Research in Psychiatric Disorders in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in Houston.
