The University awarded a contract for psychopathology consultant research services to Dr. Daniel Klein, East Setauket, NY, for an estimated $82,967.
NIH Research grant approved Dr. Klein, consultant, as co-investigator for a psychopathology related study and training of assessors. Dr. Klein's services are necessary for the execution of the proper timeline of this study. Consequently, continuation of his consultant services is paramount to meeting the research grant objectives.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the
compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
Dr. Klein has been a PI for multiple large family studies examining the heritability of depression and anxiety, including studies looking at siblings, parents, and children of individuals with these disorders. In addition to these areas, he has also examined general classification issues regarding internalizing disorders in order to better understand and define these phenotypes. His experience is uniquely-suited to be a consultant on this project.
