The NYU Langone Psychedelic Medicine Research Training Program was developed and launched in September 2020 to provide support, training, mentorship, and research funding necessary for junior scientists to establish independent careers studying psychedelic and psychedelic-inspired treatments. To ensure longevity and sustainability of the field, the Program will maintain a focus on establishing new, independent, governmentally-funded careers in research on psychedelic-inspired treatment approaches.
The Program will provide partial-to-full salary and benefits for postdoctoral researchers for up to 5 years and support for a mentored research project. The first year of each trainee’s participation will include identifying a primary mentor, developing and presenting a research project proposal, and initiating study startup activities. The remaining (up to) 4 years will be devoted to data collection, analysis, and presentation, as well as career development activities, including submission of a K- or R- series grant application to NIH. Throughout participation, all trainees will be required to attend and participate in weekly seminars led by the Program directors, submit progress reports, regularly attend scientific and public conferences, and continue to progress towards scientific independence. Each trainee will present a project proposal, data summary, and final presentation within the weekly seminar series. Continuation in the program beyond 3 years will be based on satisfactory progress in career development as well as continued need for support.
