Dr. Laurence Kirmayer, editor of Transcultural Psychiatry and Director of Social and Transcultural Psychiatry at McGill University, has signed the petition to investigate the University of Minnesota. He writes:
"The lack of transparency and willingness to look into how research and
clinical trials are conducted is, in itself, a breach of trust that
casts a pall on the university and the psychiatric community. As a
psychiatrist, I am deeply concerned about the widespread complicity
between the profession and the pharmaceutical industry."
