Manpreet K. Singh, M.D., M.S.


In 2006, Dr. Singh was awarded a Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation Fellowship for her project “Emotion Dysregulation in Adolescents with Bipolar Disorder.”  This study used behavioral and fMRI tools to improve our understanding of the neural processes that modulate emotion in adolescents early in the course of bipolar disorder.

Dr. Singh is now a seasoned researcher with more than 150 publications.  She directs Stanford’s Pediatric Mood Disorders Program and leads a multidisciplinary team of researchers investigating the origins and pathways for developing mood disorders during childhood.  She completed her NIMH career development award that characterizes emotion regulation in healthy offspring of parents with bipolar disorder and has been leading three independent NIMH funded studies examining the mechanisms of mood and other psychiatric disorders and their treatments among youth.

She is currently mentoring Adina Fischer, M.D., Ph.D., who in 2019 was awarded a Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation Fellowship in Depression for her project “Investigating the Neurobiological Effects of Cannabis in Adolescent Depression.”
