The largest program at SMRI is for the identification of medications that will improve the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Although medications have been available since the 1960s, they have proven to be only partially effective. Many individuals affected with these diseases continue to have symptoms even when taking available medications, while others find it difficult to take medications because of side effects.
The purpose of this program is to support the testing of medications to assess their efficacy for treating schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. At any given time, SMRI is supporting 50-60 treatment trials, the majority of which are generic and/or off-label medications.
SMRI is no longer accepting treatment trial applications due to limited funding.
