Hosted by Wyss Core Faculty David R. Walt, PhD, Diagnostics Grand Rounds brings clinicians with unmet needs to the Wyss Institute. The goal of these sessions is to inform technology developers about important clinical problems that can help them direct their technology development efforts. Presenters are asked to identify diagnostic needs that will have an impact on the quality of care they deliver.
Mood disorders, including bipolar disorder and depression, are common disorders characterized by changes in mood and energy that can lead to significant impairment, negative health outcomes, and increased mortality. These disorders are heterogeneous and episodic, resulting in challenges related to diagnosis, treatment, and course of illness. During this presentation, Dr. Mahon will discuss these challenges, as well as new opportunities for advancing data-driven care.
