Paul Liknaitzky Lab

Welcome to
The Clinical Psychedelic Research Lab

Australia's first psychedelic lab, establishing a rigorous program of research in psychedelic medicine at Monash University that seeks to evaluate therapeutic effects, innovate on treatment design, mitigate known risks, explore potential drawbacks, and understand therapeutic mechanisms.

The Lab is led by Dr Paul Liknaitzky.

The Lab is part of the School of Psychological Sciences within the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health, and the Department of Psychiatry within the School of Clinical Sciences.

Latest announcement - Participants wanted for The Monash Psychedelic Experience and Effects Survey
