Data Tells a Story: Psychedelic Research in the Digital Age

We are currently in the midst of a historic resurgence of clinical research aimed at developing therapeutic applications for psychedelic drugs such as psilocybin, ketamine, and MDMA. The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) has been utilizing Medrio products since 2013 to conduct Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other indications. In this talk, Ben Shechet will discuss MAPS’s work as an example of a small, nonprofit pharmaceutical company using Medrio’s database management tools to engage in novel clinical research. We will discuss the history and context of this research, Phase 2 outcome data for MDMA-assisted psychotherapy projects, current Phase 3 research, and lessons and improvements in database design and clinical processes that may be useful to other small pharmaceutical companies engaged in drug development work.
