University of California San Diego

The Psychedelics and Health Research Initiative (PHRI) at UC San Diego conducts novel basic and clinical research on the use of psychedelics to treat pain and other health conditions. The centre has developed a research program entailing; pilot studies and clinical trials, collecting fMRI, EEG, and other biometric and cognitive data from study participants and developing new clinical, ethical, and legal frameworks for how these treatments can best be integrated into the healthcare system.

The Psychedelics and Health Research Initiative is a collaboration between the Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination, the Center for Human Frontiers at UC San Diego’s Qualcomm Institute, the Center for Mindfulness, and the departments of Anesthesiology and Psychiatry at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

In the summer of 2023, a $1.5 million gift by Eugene Jhong started another research project looking into the administration of DMT (extended state). Jon Dean will lead this research as the director of the Division of DMT Research at PHRI.
