Brain & Behavior Research Foundation awards nearly $4 million in new NARSAD grants

esearch Foundation salutes the impressive 2013 NARSAD Independent Investigator Grantees and extends gratitude to our donors and Scientific Council for their support," says Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., Foundation President & CEO. "All of our grants are funded through private contributions by people passionate about and committed to improving the lives of those with mental illness. As researchers increasingly face funding challenges, Foundation support is more important than ever."

NARSAD Grants support research across disciplines in these categories:

  • Diagnostic Tools / Early Interventionto recognize early signs of mental illness and treat it as early as possible

  • New Technologiesto advance or create new ways of studying and understanding the brain

  • Next Generation Therapiesto reduce symptoms and retrain the brain

  • Basic Researchto understand what happens in the brain to cause mental illness

The list of 2013 NARSAD Independent Investigator Grantees and their project summaries by research category and type of illness follows.


Bipolar Disorder

Mark A. Ellenbogen, Ph.D., of Concordia University and a Canada Research Chair, will test a program aimed at heading off mental illness in children of parents with bipolar disorder. These children show high levels of the stress hormone cortisol and are more biologically sensitive to stress. The study will apply a program called Reducing Unwanted Stress in the Home (RUSH), developed in the Ellenbogen lab, which includes stress management techniques for the children and family-based interventions.

Michael F. Grunebaum, M.D., of Columbia University, hopes to lower the high rate of suicide risk in people with bipolar disorder. Studies have demonstrated rapid improvement in suicidal ideation
