CDI Overview

The Career Development Institute for Bipolar Disorder is a 3-day intensive institute for junior investigators interested in a research career, with continuing communication with mentors and peers. 

The goals of the CDI are:

  • to shorten the time between their research training period and initial extramural grant support
  • to foster their relationships with established researchers who can serve as mentors or consultants
  • to facilitate peer support and collaborative research among their cohort group of developing investigators
