European Psilocybin Research Seminar

PEN Foundation and COMPASS Pathways co-sponsored this private, interactive seminar on psilocybin research. The main aim of this event was to accelerate clinical development of psilocybin into a medicine, facilitating increased access for patients, and to promote collaboration among European sites.

European scientists and clinicians involved in or planning research into psilocybin gathered to discuss important topics such as psychotherapeutic modalities that support safety and improve clinical efficacy of psilocybin for different indications. Participants also discussed the clinical and regulatory issues that may arise during the process of developing psilocybin into an approved medicine in the EU.
