We Support Czech Psychedelic Research

About us

The foundation was established to support research and study of psychedelic substances and their use in pharmacology, psychology, addictology and psychiatry.

The founder is Společnost pro podporu neurovědního výzkumu s.r.o. (the Society for the Support of Neuroscience Research). At present, the members of the Management Board are Václav Dejčmar, Ondřej Fryc and Yemi A.D.

The purpose of the foundation is primarily to support research institutes and teams in the Czech Republic that study psychedelic substances.

The fundation is primarily intended to support studies in the fields of pharmacology, neurobiology, primary and secondary prevention of risky use, psychology, addictology and psychiatry, which deal with the mechanism of action of the psychotropic effects of these substances. In a broader context, the fund also supports social science projects focused on cultural consequences and the history of psychedelic use.
