The Foundation for Psychocultural Research (FPR) was founded in December 1999 with a gift from Robert Lemelson, a documentary filmmaker and psychological anthropologist on the UCLA faculty.

The FPR supports and advances interdisciplinary and integrative research and training on interactions of culture, neuroscience, psychiatry, and psychology, with an emphasis on cultural processes as central.

Our primary objective is to help articulate and support the creation of transformative paradigms that address issues of fundamental clinical and social concern.
