Dr. Melvin G. McInnis is the Thomas B and Nancy Upjohn Woodworth Professor of Bipolar Disorder and Depression. He directs the research and clinical program in bipolar disorder at the University of Michigan (UM).
Dr. McInnis trained in Canada, Iceland, London (UK), and Baltimore (Johns Hopkins). Dr. McInnis came to UM in 2004 to lead the Prechter Bipolar Program, a rich resource of longitudinal clinical and biological data on individuals with bipolar disorder as well as healthy controls. The Prechter Genetic Repository is housed within the Central Biorepository of the UM, and includes a database of outcomes and clinical treatment trials in bipolar disorder and depression in addition to genetic and mobile health data.
Dr. McInnis leads an extensive multi-disciplinary research team focused on identification of underlying biological mechanisms of bipolar, and programs designed towards predictive computational modeling that integrates multimodal data from mobile and clinical observations to test models of outcomes in the illness.
