Hannan Fleiman, co-Founder and President, said, “With our drug development program advancing work on FT-104, our next generation psychedelic molecule, and our renowned Field Trip Health Centers opening up across North America, Field Trip is positioned to be the global leader in the psychedelics industry. Following our successful listing on the TSX in Canada, we are now taking the first steps to list on the NASDAQ, a move which would greatly increase the ability of US investors to participate in this growth.”
By the end of 2021, Field Trip anticipates being able to commence Phase 1 human trials for FT-104 and expects to have 20 Field Trip Health centers operating or under construction, including its existing and announced locations in New York, NY, Toronto, ON, Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL, Houston, TX, Atlanta, GA, San Diego, CA, San Jose, CA, Seattle, WA, Washington, DC, Fredericton, NB and Amsterdam, NL.
