In a quest to advance the emerging field of psychedelics for therapies and wellness, Johns Hopkins Medicine is launching a new Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research — believed to be the largest research center of its kind in the world.
Much early work at Johns Hopkins has focused on psilocybin, the chemical found in so-called magic mushrooms. At the new center, studies of psilocybin in patients will determine its effectiveness as a new therapy for opioid addiction, Alzheimer’s disease, anorexia nervosa and alcohol use in people with major depression, among other conditions.
In the absence of federal funding, the Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research is relying on private gifts totaling $17 million to get started. This funding will support six faculty neuroscientists, experimental psychologists and clinicians with expertise in psychedelic science, as well as five postdoctoral scientists.
