National Institute of Mental Health Collaborative Studies in Psychopharmacology
By Martin M. Katz
The National Institute of Mental Health Collaborative Study refers to the study the Psychopharmacology Service Center (PSC) of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) was charged with to carry out under the guidance of the National Advisory Committee on Psychopharmacology (Katz 2011). It was a nationwide controlled study of phenothiazine treatment in acute schizophrenia that was led by principal investigators Jonathon O. Cole, Gerald L. Klerman and Salomon Goldberg and carried out in disparate public, private and university hospitals (National Institute of Mental Health, Psychopharmacology Service Center Collaborative Study Group 1964; National Institute of Mental Health, Psychopharmacology Research Branch Collaborative Study Group 1967).
