Tony Bossis works with the NYU School of Medicine in their psychedelic research program. He was one of the lead investigators on the landmark 2016 study that found profound stress reduction in cancer patients after a single dose of psilocybin. He's still fascinated by the mystical experiences of the great religions — and he's especially interested in how they map onto psychedelic experiences.
