His treatment research has involved clinical trials of novel medications for bipolar disorder, with emphasis on anticonvulsants, second-generation antipsychotics, and comparative effectiveness of pharmacotherapies. Dr. Ketter has participated in numerous federally-, foundation-, and industry-funded bipolar disorder clinical research studies, has received two National Alliance for Research in Schizophrenia and Depression Established Investigator Awards and Stanley Foundation Research Award Program support, and is an American Psychiatric Association Distinguished Fellow.
