Dr. Kryskow is actively involved in research related to psilocybin, MDMA, ketamine, mental wellness, chronic pain and neurogenesis, and is a co-investigator on the largest microdosing study Microdose.me which is ongoing with 14 500+ enrolled participants, as well as a Clinical Instructor at University of British Columbia and Adjunct Professor at Vancouver Island University and the medical lead on the Roots To Thrive Ketamine Assisted Therapy program that treats health care providers with PTSD, depression, anxiety, and addiction.
