TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reunion Neuroscience Inc. (TSX: REUN, NASDAQ: REUN) ("Reunion" or the “Company”), a leader in novel serotonergic psychedelic drug development committed to innovating proprietary therapeutic solutions for mental health conditions, announced today that the Company’s President and CEO, Mr. Greg Mayes, will participate on a panel at this year’s Horizons Perspectives on Psychedelics conference, taking place at the New York Academy of Medicine in New York City.
The panel session, titled, “Raising Capital for Psychedelic Endeavors,” is part of the conference’s Psychedelic Business Forum and will focus on how both companies and funds are raising capital to expand their business interests in the growing field of psychedelic medicine. The panel will take place on Thursday, Oct. 13, 2022, at 2:30 p.m. ET.
“There is a clear and urgent need to address the ongoing mental health crisis that plagues society today, and science has proven that psychedelic medicine may be key to developing the next generation of effective CNS treatments,” said Mr. Mayes. “As such, it is vital that we think about psychedelics as an important component to mental health treatment in much the same way that we evaluate the use of traditional therapeutics. The evidence supporting the success of psychedelic treatment across a wide range of psychiatric conditions continues to evolve, and these promising therapies deserve both attention and investment. This is an important conversation to have to set the record straight, and I look forward to exploring this topic more in-depth at Horizons to further raise awareness.”
Presented by Horizons PBC, a public benefit corporation, the Perspectives on Psychedelics conference is the largest and longest-running annual gathering of the psychedelic community in the world. Its Psychedelic Business Forum explores the psychedelic economy and industry for executives, entrepreneurs and funders.
