As a member of the Steering Committee, MindMed will contribute to setting project priorities within CTTI's agenda, as well as serving on the teams that create recommendations and resources to transform clinical trials globally.
"We welcome every meaningful opportunity to actively participate in the advancement of innovations that are ultimately contributing to the improvement of the way we develop medicine and bring treatment to the patient," said Daniel R. Karlin, MD MA, Chief Medical Officer of MindMed.

We look forward to being active partners in this initiative."
