Beckley Psytech appoints renowned psychedelic experts to Scientific Advisory Board
August 18th, 2020
Beckley Psytech, the psychedelic medicine company, has appointed a series of respected figures from the psychiatric and psychedelic research fields to its Scientific Advisory Board, bringing decades of expertise to its research programme. The new appointees include:
- Professor Guy Goodwin, Senior Research Fellow at the Department of Psychiatry, The University of Oxford
- Dr Robin L. Carhart-Harris PhD, Director of the Centre for Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London
- Professor Matthew W. Johnson PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
- Frederick Reinholdt MA, Senior Therapist in Psychedelics at The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London
The Scientific Advisory Board, chaired by psychedelic research pioneer Lady Amanda Feilding, oversees Oxford-based Beckley Psytech’s development of a pipeline of psychedelic drugs into licensed pharmaceutical medicines for treating debilitating psychiatric and neurological diseases.
The new appointments build upon Beckley Psytech’s pool of talent spanning the psychedelic and pharmaceutical fields, and follows the $3.8m funding secured earlier this year as the company continues to advance its research programmes, including its exploration of a synthetic pharmaceutical formulation of the short-acting psychedelic agent 5-MeO-DMT.
Amanda Feilding, cofounder of Beckley Psytech and Chair of the Scientific Advisory Board, says: “The expansion of the Scientific Advisory Board adds further depth and resource to Beckley Psytech’s strong foundations in psychedelic medicinal research, and more momentum to our mission of bringing safe and effective pharmaceutical-standard psychedelic medicines to patients in need.
“These appointments come at a pivotal time as we advance our lead programme on 5-MeO-DMT as well as expanding our research of other psychedelic agents, which we hope will offer transformative treatments for patients suffering from a variety of debilitating illnesses. We’re excited by the world-class knowledge, experience and strategic counsel the new Scientific Advisors bring to the Beckley team.”
