Albert Labs Appoints Dr Sara Tai as Principal Investigator for upcoming RWE Study on KRN-101

VANCOUVER, BC, May 26, 2022 /CNW/ - Albert Labs International Corp. (Albert Labs (CSE: ABRT) (FSE: VB50), the "Company"), an R&D company developing mental health therapeutic medicines, is pleased to announce Dr. Sara Tai, Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology from Manchester University, as Principal Investigator for its upcoming trial. The trial will evaluate the safety and efficacy of KRN-101, a psilocybin-based medicine, for the treatment of cancer-related distress, an indication thought to affect some 15 million patients in Europe and North America.

Dr. Tai has extensive clinical research experience, having developed psychological interventions for people diagnosed with a variety of mental health issues such as depression, psychosis and bipolar disorder. Her research focuses on the science and practice of therapy, progressing these into regulatory approved clinical practices. In addition to developing these structures and practices, Sara has a deep understanding of the commercial imperative of delivering the necessary training to offer these novel therapeutics at scale as part of the UK's National Health Service.

Dr. Malcolm Barratt-Johnson, Albert Labs' Chief Medical Officer, said, "I'm delighted that Dr.  Tai has agreed to work with Albert Labs as Principal Investigator in what will be the company's key first study investigating the effects of a natural psilocybin treatment on cancer-related distress. Sara is rightly regarded as a leading global light in the field of psilocybin research, having been involved in several of the studies underpinning our present knowledge in this important area of clinical research."

"I am thrilled to be working with Albert Labs, who are committed to addressing the mental health needs of people with cancer, a significant area of unmet need. I value Albert Labs' emphasis on ethical and patient-centred investigations of the effectiveness of psychotherapy assisted by novel plant-based medications. Being involved in such groundbreaking research with the potential to develop new treatments for people in great need is very exciting", added Dr. Sara Tai.  Listen more to what Dr Tai had to say in a recent interview.
