Researchers explore the ethics of psychedelic research

Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine have launched a new program exploring the Ethical and Legal Implications of PSychedelics in Society (ELIPSIS).

The ELIPSIS program was prompted by the boom in psychedelics-related research driven by the desire to find new ways to address mental health. Participants include a multidisciplinary team of bioethicists, social scientists, and experts in medicine, health policy, and law.

The expert team aims to outline ethical guidelines and policies for conducting psychedelic research, providing a framework for the next generation of scholars interested in exploring psychedelic medicine. They will also look into the legal implication of medicinal psychedelic use in collaboration with experts from across the country.
