"And girls. This is Tim Ferriss and welcome to a very exciting edition of the Tim Ferriss show. This is an in-between assode and that means that the format is a little weird. It's not a long form interview but it's a very very important announcement. This is something I've been working on for around a year and a half very intensely and something diligent scientists have been working toward for twenty twenty plus years multiple decades. This episode features a recording of a press conference that I did last week announcing the launch of the world's largest PSYCHEDELIC psychedelic research center and the first PSYCHEDELIC Research Center in the US it is called the Center for Psychedelic consciousness research or research coach. If you prefer at Johns Hopkins Medicine among other things they'll be investigating the effectiveness of psychedelics as a new therapy for opiate addiction Alzheimer's. I disease specifically the depression that often accompanies Alzheimer's disease but they'll be looking at secondary outcomes which will track cognitive effects which is of great interest to me post traumatic stress disorder. PTSD Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome formerly known as CHRONIC LYME disease anorexia rex you nervosa which has the highest mortality rate e fatality rate of any psychiatric disorder and alcohol use in people with major depression and the researchers hope to create precision medicine tailored to individual patients specific needs. It's super exciting. I couldn't be happier and it wouldn't have happened without generous support from Stephen Alexandra Cohen at Cohen. Give C. O. H. E. N. G. I. V. on Twitter Matt Molin Wig at a Photo Matt M. Not on Twitter Blake Majkowski at Blake Majkowski M. Y. C. O. S. K. I. E. ON twitter and Craig Nurenberg many thanks also to Benedict Carey of the New York Times for investigating and reporting on this from multiple perspectives as he's done for many many years. He is at Ben Kerry sorry and why T. C. A. R. E. Y. N. Y. T. On twitter as some of you know shifted most of my focus from startup investing this fueled around two fifteen. It's incredibly important to me that this watershed announcement helps to catalyze more studies more ambitious centers more scientists entering the field and more philanthropist and sources of funding taking a really close look at psychedelic science to that end. It's critical that more people realize there is much more reputational upside much more reputational reward than reputational risk in supporting this important work in two thousand nineteen and beyond and and my hope is to broadcast this as widely as possible and there are few different ways to do that one is to share the New York Times pieces that have come out in there are a few different near times pieces that have come out covering this one of them can be found tim dot blog forward slash Whitey or New York Times spelled spelled however you want will forward to one article so I would sincerely ask that if you're interested in this space or if you find value in exploring the space which I think holds the potential to treat what are considered untreatable or intractable conditions then. Please share that you are l. and the announcement itself. I'm joined in the press conference with Dr Rowland Griffiths and you'll hear intros later so I'm not going to get into a doctoral and griffiths whose incredible Dr Matthew Johnson Johnson who was incredible and then also Audrey Hong. PhD Who is the moderator and I will keep it short for now a couple couple of time markers this is maybe a little drier than some of my interviews that bounce around and can be very fun loving. This is pretty serious but a couple a couple of time markets. If you WANNA skip the initial introductory remarks you can jump to about four minutes and thirty seconds from when this intro ends if you WANNA go directly to my comments if if you're interested in why I would focus so much on the spaceman my personal reasons my kind of macro level big picture reasons you can jump to about eleven minutes and ten and seconds after I stopped talking the intro and then if you want to get straight to the QNA where we're fielding questions from people in attendance than you can go to fifteen minutes and thirty seconds after I stopped talking so without further ado please enjoy this incredibly important incredibly exciting announcement of the Center for Psychedelic in consciousness research.
