2009 Career Development Institute (CDI) for Bipolar Disorder
April 18 - 21, 2009

Dear Colleague,

The University of Pittsburgh is sponsoring the 2009 Career Development Institute (CDI) for Bipolar Disorder. The goal of the CDI for Bipolar Disorder is to provide training and mentorship to promising young researchers from across the country who are interested in the study of bipolar disorder. The program is designed to provide necessary skills and support for them to have successful research careers in bipolar disorder.  The CDI for Bipolar Disorder is scheduled for April 18-21, 2009 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  

We are writing at this time to inform you of this opportunity and to ask that you consider applying yourself or, for more advanced investigators on this distribution list, please forward to colleagues who are advanced post-doctoral students, fellows, or junior faculty who would be appropriate participants in the CDI for Bipolar Disorder.  The details of the program are outlined in the announcement available here.   Please address any questions to our Coordinator, Kim Bauer, at bauerka@upmc.edu.

Thank you again for your help in identifying potential participants for the 2009 Career Development Institute for Bipolar Disorder and assuring that we address the nation's needs for physician scientists in this important area of research.
