PBS Graduate Student Sixtine Fleury Interviewed By BioTechniques

Sixtine Fleury, a PhD student in Systems & Behavioral Neuroscience in Asssitant Professor Kate Nautiyal's Lab, was interviewed by BioTechniques about her recent work on the therapeutic effects of psilocybin and the poster she presented at the Society for Neuroscience meeting this past November.

In the interview, Sixtine reports, "I've been really interested in looking at the non-hallucinatory context of psilocybin because it is such a powerful substance with great potential for good, but it scares a lot of people. And so, the goal is to try and develop analogs of psilocybin that don't induce powerful hallucinations, but still deliver a therapeutic effect." Read Sixtine's BioTechniques interview here.
