Innovating in mental health
The Beckley Med Foundation contributes to the development of clinical trials and observational studies with these focus of interest:
The safety and efficacy of traditional indigenous medicine with master plants
The potential of psychedelic plants on non-pathological aspects of human beings and communities
The development of psychotherapeutic protocols as adjuncts to psychedelic pharmacotherapy
The evaluation of mechanisms of change in psychedelic therapy
Studies focused on the development of psychedelic drugs in populations of clinical interest
Clinical Research Ethics Committee
Fundación Beckley Med is supervised by the Institut Jordi Gol i Gurina, which has an accredited clinical research ethics committee in the field of Primary Care.
Given that Spain has a privileged regulatory framework for the use of psychedelic drugs, the Beckley Med Foundation can welcome the initiatives of other international institutions that are unable to carry out the studies they wish because of the legislation in their own countries.
In this way, Beckley Med facilitates the translation of scientific protocols into Spanish and the formal processing by the Ethics Committee of reference, as well as by the Spanish Medicines Agency. It can also facilitate the collection and analysis of data, as well as contribute to the design and writing of relevant scientific publications.
A wide network of partners
Through its partnership with the Beckley Foundation, Fundación Beckley Med will have the opportunity to work with leading international research institutions. Fundación Beckley Med will also collaborate with various local user associations in Spain that facilitate the development of observational studies.
As personal use of substances is not criminalised in Spain, there are currently around 300 associations of cannabis users in Catalonia, as well as various associations of ethnobotanical users or associations of users of all types of drugs focused exclusively on the development of scientific studies.
Collaboration with these types of entities facilitates the execution of exploratory observational studies, avoiding the biases of this type of research design, as the setting, analysis and dosage of the substances can be controlled.
