NEU SSDPs 3rd Annual Psychedelic Research Panel

Come join Northeastern University’s Students for Sensible Drug Policy chapter as we host our third annual Psychedelic Research Panel as part of National Public Health Week! There will be great speakers and even greater discussion to be had! We are still determining which room we will be hosting it in, but it will be posted once we know!

The speakers include:

Dr. John Halpern, Harvard Psychiatrist and researcher who has conducted studies on the cognitive effects of peyote and MDMA, and is currently working on development of an LSD analogue for use in the treatment of Cluster Headaches. Dr. Halpern has a private practice at McLean Hospital in Belmont.

Dr. Rick Doblin, the founder and Executive Director of MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies). He holds a doctorate in public policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. His organization funds clinical trials that are conducted around the world and are aimed at developing psychedelic drugs and marijuana into prescription medicines.
