National Institute of Mental Health


The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has a requirement to

(1) establish qualified clinical research units that, by the building

of existing research resources at the host institution and combining

the necessary expertise in clinical pharmacology and child

psychiatry, can become national resources where studies on the safety

and efficacy of psychotropic medications can be conducted in a prompt

and cost effective manner; and (2) fund selected research projects of

particular public health significance to be conducted at these units.

The units will work as a network of research sites and conduct high

priority clinical studies in various pediatric ages, conducting

research on various aspects of pediatric psychopharmacology,

including, but not limited to: dose ranges, dosing regimen,

pharmacokinetics, general safety profile, efficacy and effectiveness,

and effects on cognition, behavior and development.  It is

anticipated that a three-year, cost reimbursement (completion) type

contract will be awarded.




Request for Proposal (RFP)  No. NIMH-96-CR-0005 is now available and

proposals are due on or about July 8, 1996.  All responsible sources

may submit a proposal that will be considered by the NIMH.  Telephone

requests will not be honored.  Requests must be submitted in writing

or by FAX and addressed to:
