UCSF Launches New Psychedelic Research Division

The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is creating a Neuroscape Psychedelics Division, a multidisciplinary research center to bridge the gap between neuroscience and technology. The division, funded by $6.4 million in private donations, will take a translational research approach to integrate cutting-edge neuroscience technology with psychedelics treatment. As part of that effort, the division will be conducting a Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS)-supported phase III clinical trial investigating MDMA for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

“Our generous funders are making possible a major leap forward in generating evidence of clinical efficacy and safety for individuals using psychedelics to treat a broad range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction,” says Adam Gazzaley, Executive Director of Neuroscape. “At Neuroscape, we have taken a neuroscience-based, closed-loop approach to creating experiential medicine, including the first FDA-cleared video game as a medical therapeutic. We are excited to apply this same approach to understanding how we can deliver psychedelic treatments in a more personalized and precisely-targeted manner.”
