WHY A TASK GROUP?
Formed in November 2012, the Biomarkers Task Group engages members in identifying biological indicators, along with developing and promoting diagnostic tools. The task group uses the results of current investigations in future directions of research.
- Multiple research projects ongoing
- Multiple publications in draft
- For a description of this task group’s recently completed clinical study, please visit the ClinicalTrials.gov page: “The BIO-K Study: A Single-Arm, Open-Label, Biomarker Development Clinical Trial of Ketamine for Non-Psychotic Unipolar Major Depression and Bipolar I or II Depression”. This program was generously funded by a gift from a University of Michigan Eisenberg Family Depression Center donor.
- Completion of enrollment, follow-up, and reporting of the BIO-K study
