Biography

Jordan Sloshower, MD, MSc is a psychiatrist and researcher in the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University. His research and clinical interests focus on therapeutic applications of psychedelic substances and in particular, how psychedelics can be combined optimally with psychotherapy and other healing modalities to treat a variety of conditions. Jordan is a co-founder of the Yale Psychedelic Science Group and is currently an investigator and therapist in two clinical trials of psilocybin-assisted therapy in the treatment of major depressive disorder. This research investigates potential neurobiological and psychological mechanisms of action, namely induction of neuroplasticity and psychological flexibility. He is also a clinical investigator in MAPS’ Expanded Access Program for MDMA-assisted therapy of PTSD. His perspective is informed by prior training in medical anthropology and global health, and deep interests in ethnobotany, Buddhist philosophy, yoga, meditation, and integrative approaches to wellness.
