ANN ARBOR—A transformative donation of $10.75 million to the University of Michigan Depression Center will help accelerate development of personalized treatments that are necessary to conquer clinical depression, bipolar disorder and related illnesses. The gift comes from U-M alumni Frances and Kenneth Eisenberg and family of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
For more than 15 years, U-M Depression Center researchers have worked collaboratively to make key discoveries and test innovative treatment options for depression and bipolar illnesses, among the world's most disabling conditions. The Eisenberg gift will enhance those efforts.
The U-M Depression Center was the world's first comprehensive center established to fight depression and associated stigma on all fronts. It has helped inspire the creation of 32 additional depression centers across the U.S. and Canada, creating an international network to accelerate progress.
