Welcome to the Responsible Innovation Lab!


About the workshop -- Responsible Innovation Forum: Australian psychedelic medicine

Psychedelic research and innovation is currently in the midst of an international boom, with early results and ardent advocacy by consumer, commercial and philanthropic groups leading to widespread and rapid drug policy changes.

Drawing on interviews with Australian researchers that are working with psychedelics as emerging technologies in mental health and neuroscience, this presentation will explore how the field contends with its past and looks towards the future. The growing pains experienced by the field as it scales up to include increasingly diverse voices and interests will be outlined, with a focus on how mutually responsive stakeholder relationships can support responsible, safe and sustainable innovation in this space.


About the speaker -- Michaela Barber is a Clinical Psychology PhD candidate with the Neuroscience and Society group at Monash University, researching the ethical challenges and opportunities for responsible innovation in psychedelic-assisted therapy. She is also a registered provisional psychologist, with an interest in trauma, addiction and a systems approach to adult and paediatric mental health.
