Psychedelics in Science and Medicine

Event Details


Join us at the first academic meeting on psychedelics research at Brown University!

Psychedelics in Science and Medicine is taking place at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University on Saturday, April 29th, 2017 and will bring pioneers of modern evidence-based clinical applications of psychedelics to engage with the medical, scientific and the greater Rhode Island community.

At this symposium, we will hear from from Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Alexander Paleos, M.D., and, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Stephen Ross, M.D., from the NYU School of Medicine; Rick Doblin, Ph.D., the Founder of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS); Katherine MacLean, Ph.D., the director of the Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program; and Matthew Johnson, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Johns Hopkins Medicine.

This symposium will take place days after a large gathering of scientists and policy makers at Psychedelic Science 2017 in Oakland, California. Our speakers will be bringing with them fresh ideas and themes in psychedelic research that arise in Oakland for attendees of this conference to engage with and expand upon.

To make this symposium happen and cover for the expenses of our guest speakers, we need your generous support! We have been able to secure a modest grant from our generous alumni association towards the event. However, we will need the support of private donors and sponsors to meet our goal. Our goal is to raise $3,500 that will go straight towards accommodating the keynote speakers.

And finally, help us spread the word! Please share this indiegogo campaign and the event details with corporate or private donors who would love to support Psychedelics in Science and Medicine. We also encourage you to share this campaign on your social media sites.

Tickets for the event will be available in February. Until then, we’re fundraising to pay for travel expenses for the speakers. Any donation is greatly appreciated!
