Is the University of Miami crazy? Well, if they are don't be surprised if their new psychiatrist pumps them full of lots and lots of GlaxoSmithKline pills.
. Nemeroff is an internationally known expert on depression, unfortunately he's also widely known for a bit of deception.
While head of Emory University's psychiatry department he failed to report $800,000 he was given for speaking fees from drug company GlaxoSmithKline.
Since 2000, Nemeroff had taken more than $2.8 million from drug companies. That's the company that makes anti-depressants like Paxil and Wellbutrin, and his ties to the company presented a conflict of interest. Criticism even extended to the Senate where he was taken to task by Sen. Chuck Grassley
