to support multi-site clinical trials in schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, 
bipolar disorder, treatment resistant depression, and adolescent depression.  
Information about these trials is available on the NIMH website at

inviting applications for ancillary studies that extend the utility of the 
national resource created in these trials. The purpose of ancillary studies 
is to promote innovative lines of scientific inquiry regarding the 
understanding and treatment of mental disorders.
NIMH is also committed to a broad spectrum of Career Development Programs, 
all of which are discussed on our Website located at
