While I agree that the numbers are stunning, let's remember that the New York Times is in the business of making news. They want readers and may "sensationalize" to get people to read the articles. Dr. Nemeroff has done an incredible amount of research in the field and has no doubt helped many patients.
> I am stunned to read this:
> "One of the nations most influential psychiatrists earned more than $2.8 million in consulting arrangements with drug makers from 2000 to 2007, failed to report at least $1.2 million of that income to his university and violated federal research rules, according to documents provided to Congressional investigators....
> From 2000 through 2006, Dr. Nemeroff earned more than $960,000 from GlaxoSmithKline but listed earnings of less than $35,000 for the period on his university disclosure forms, according to Congressional documents."
> I am stunned by the amount of money. I am stunned by the blatant deception. And I'm stunned that Nemeroff is such a sell-out. I always thought of him as a class act.
