The PSYRES Foundation for the support of research and study of psychedelic substances and their use in pharmacology, psychology, addictology and psychiatry. The fund was established by Společnost pro podporu neurovědního výzkumu s.r.o. (company for the support of neurological research). Currently, doctors from the National Institute of Mental Health are members of the Board of Directors.
The main aim of the endowment foundation is to support research teams and workplaces focussing on the study of psychedelic substances. Primarily, the fund is dedicated to support studies in the areas of pharmacology, neurobiology, primary and secondary prevention of their hazardous use, psychology, addictology and psychiatry, which focus on the mechanisms of the psychotropic effects of these substances. In a wider context, the fund also supports social science projects directed at the cultural consequences and history of the use of psychedelics. The National Institute of Mental Health must figure at least as a co-research participant.
