Dr. KARL L. R. JANSEN
London researcher Karl L. R. Jansen, M.D., Ph.D., and Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, is the world's leading expert on ketamine. He has studied ketamine at every level: from photographing the receptors to which ketamine binds in the human brain, while earning his doctorate in clinical pharmacology at the University of Oxford, to publishing papers on his discovery of the similarities between ketamine's psychoactive effects and the near-death experience during his study of medicine in New Zealand. Dr. Jansen believes that ketamine can have potent healing powers when used as an adjunct to psychotherapy but warns of the addictive nature of ketamine. Because of this risk, he has developed new methods for the treatment of ketamine addiction. Dr. Jansen left Oxford in 1993 to train in psychiatry at the Maudsley and Bethlem Royal Hospitals.
Dr. Jansen welcomes correspondence on the topic of ketamine. He can be contacted via e-mail at K@BTInternet.com
