OUR Research

Our current research is focused on 1) using psilocybin in the treatment of anxiety and depression in cancer patients at three universities and the treatment of addiction to alcohol and smoking; and 2) the basic science of consciousness at the Heffter Research Center, Zürich, using psilocybin as a tool to correlate conscious experience with brain function.
