About the event
Spend your evening with the Psychedelic Society of Texas community and hear Dr. Cody Wenthur of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's School of Pharmacy present the findings from the POEISIS psychedelic research study conducted earlier this year with PsyT community members. Whether you participated in this study or not, please join us for this evening of learning, community, and connection. The event is free, but non-alcoholic beverages and a casual dinner will be served, so please RSVP with committed intention. In short, don't be a flake:)
As participants may know, the data collected in this study is a critical piece in helping Dr. Wenthur's team better understand the impact of art and environmental factors on participant mindset, comfort, and psychedelic experience. This information will be applied to the development of models that describe how connections between the immediate dosing environment, self-identity, and local cultural and historical context may affect therapeutic outcomes across human populations receiving drug-assisted psychotherapy interventions.
About the Speaker:
Cody Wenthur, PharmD, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Pharmacy and Director of the Psychoactive Pharmaceutical Investigation MS Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. From his earliest days in the laboratory, he has been particularly interested in questions that give us a better picture of how the brain turns external stimuli into lasting decisions and driven by the vision of using the answers to try to improve human mental health. He honed this translational ethos during his training at Purdue, Vanderbilt, and Scripps, which included clinical work in inpatient psychiatric units, mechanistically novel academic drug discovery efforts, and the search for biomarkers of response to vaccines directed against abusable psychoactive substances.
