Ethical, Legal and Social Aspects of the Psychedelic Renaissance

We are a group of researchers with expertise in psychiatry, philosophy, law, ethics, anthropology, and the social sciences that explores the implications of the return of psychedelics into medicine. Our research project, called PsychedELSI, is coordinated at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) from 2023 to 2026.
We will share our research and topical information here at our personal academic website. Please understand that we cannot provide you with medical information or access to psychedelic treatments.
