72. The Student Society Network with Libby Furminger and Ben Clayden


In this week’s Drug Science podcast we’re joined by Libby Furminger and Ben Clayden, the co-chairs of Drug Science Student Society Network. Libby and Ben are third year students from Swansea University and University of York, who are deeply interested in the use of psychedelics in medicine and drug policy. At their universities they are presidents of their respective Psychedelics in Medicine societies which raise awareness on the therapeutic potential of psychedelic drugs among fellow students. Tune in to the episode to find out about their journeys into the world of Drug Science and how to get involved yourself!
