The Moods Disorder Program within the Department of Psychiatry at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, led by Dr. Joseph Calabrese, offers various research programs to help find effective treatments and discover cures for mood disorders that affect our patients. Our studies focus on Bipolar Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, and Anxiety and Stress Disorders in adults, dual diagnosis subjects and persons with other serious comorbid conditions, including metabolic syndrome, obesity, and PTSD. 

Dr. Calabrese created the Mood Disorders Program in 1989 and has over 20 years of experience performing clinical trials in mood disorders.  Over the years, our research and clinical team has grown significantly.  We are proud to announce that we have opened two additional clinics, The Mood and Metabolic Clinic led by Martha Schinagle, M.D. and The Mood and Anxiety Clinic led by Dr. Gao, to give our patients additional resources to treat their disease.  We are currently enrolling patients in clinical trials in order to better evaluate the complexities and comorbidities of these illnesses.  We hope that our research improves treatment as well as quality of life.
