Emory will punish psychiatrist Nemeroff

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, December 23, 2008

Emory University stripped Charles B. Nemeroff of his department chairmanship and placed severe restrictions on the psychiatrist's extracurricular activities. Emory's announcement followed an internal investigation into $800,000 in payments made to Nemeroff by the global pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline between January 2000 and January 2006. Nemeroff received the payments for more than 250 speeches he made to other medical professionals. He has been a central figure in a federal investigation of whether drug company payments to doctors and academics skew research in favor of certain drugs.
