Event Recap: Partnership Kick-Off with King's College London

Scroll down for timestamps and recording.

Last month KCL and the LSF held a partnership kick-off event at The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN)1. King’s College is our very first academic partner, and we are excited to join forces in our pursuit of a longer and healthier human lifespan. Through our collaboration with Ageing Research at King’s (ARK)2, we aim to promote research and education that fall at the nexus of psychological well-being, longevity, and psychedelics.

Psychological well-being is one of the critical determinants of human longevity. Together with KCL, we will promote novel ways of targeting complex and treatment-resistant conditions through the application of psychedelics.

To learn more about our initiative, we encourage you check out the recent Longevity Technology article covering our partnership and the kick-off event.
