Luís Tojo – Psychedelic Drugs as Antidepressants

On Wednesday 3rd October we’re delighted to welcome Luís Tojo, grants adviser in neuroscience and mental health for the Wellcome Trust, who will be talking about current research on the use of psychedelic drugs as antidepressants. We expect this event to be extremely popular based on previous talks about related topics, so please reserve your free place using this link as we will need to limit numbers on the night for the sake of comfort and safety.Luis2

Luis has previously published an extensive review on novel psychoactive substances (aka legal highs), and researched the fast-acting effects of ketamine on human stem cells (specifically IPS cells) and the effects of conventional antidepressants and fatty-acids on neurogenesis and as anti-inflammatories.

Join us upstairs at the Old King’s Head, near London Bridge station. Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7pm start and as usual the event is free, but we will have a whip-round to cover speaker’s expenses and you will need to book to ensure a place.
