About Transcend

Transcend Therapeutics is a clinical-stage, neuroscience-focused company developing next-generation psychoactive medicines for neuropsychiatric disease. Transcend develops medicines that are accessible to a larger percentage of patients in need, specifically the tens of millions of patients who already take psychotropic medication. We have real-world data showing that our lead product provided significant benefit to >85% of patients with PTSD and depression. We have already advanced our lead compound into an approved Phase II study in PTSD, with plans to expand into depression and other indications.

Transcend’s leadership team includes the first scientist to receive federal funding for clinical psychedelic research in over 50 years and drug development executives with pivotal contributions to 13 FDA approvals, including the most recently approved drug for depression, and $7B dollars in M&A and public company value. Transcend has raised approximately $42M to date, and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Politico.

As a Public Benefit Corporation, we have pledged 10% of founding shares toward nonprofits focused on scientific research and patient access.
