Stanley Medical Research Institute - Treatment Trials and Drug Development

There are two parts of this SMRI program:
I. Regular Treatment Trials - The purpose of this program is to support the testing of medications to assess their efficacy for treating schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. SMRI is especially interested in supporting the testing of medications that are unlikely to be tested by pharmaceutical companies because they are not commercially profitable.
II. Special Treatment Trials and Drug Development - SMRI also supports special treatment trials and occasional drug development. Special treatment trials are usually multi-center trials that require more than $300,000 per year to carry out. Such trials are usually reserved for medications for which preliminary SMRI-supported trials have been promising.
