Paid Research Study on Bipolar Disorder and Alcohol: Young Adults Needed

Are you worried you may be at risk for bipolar disorder?


The Department of Psychiatry at Dell Medical School is conducting a research study that looks at genes and how the brain responds to alcohol using MRI brain scanning techniques.


You may be able to participate if you:

  • are 21 to 26 years old
  • are able to drink alcohol during study visits
  • are not currently diagnosed with bipolar disorder


Eligible participants will complete 3 study visits involving diagnostic interviews, mental function (cognitive and behavioral) tests, giving a saliva sample, and completing two sessions during which you drink alcohol while wearing a transdermal alcohol monitoring bracelet.


You will be compensated for study components completed and receive up to$175.


To see if you’re eligible, complete the interest form and research staff will contact you:


The research study will be conducted at The University of Texas at Austin. For more information, email
