DR MARG ROSS
Marg is a consultant clinical psychologist and the clinical lead in Australia's first ever psychedelic clinical trial. The trial will be based at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne and it will investigate the ability of psilocybin-assisted therapy to alleviate anxiety and depression in terminally ill cancer patients. Marg will be talking about how the study will run, whilst addressing the rationale for how psilocybin works to alleviate such anxiety.
DR SIMON BECK
Simon was previously a senior psychiatric registrar and research assistant investigating the use of ketamine for depression. He is passionate about fungi of all kinds and runs educational events teaching mushroom identification. Simon will be discussing psilocybe mushrooms of Australia. He will go into details on how to identify various psilocybe species using habitat, climate, and morphology. This will help distinguish psilocybe mushrooms from other common look-a-likes.

Australian Psychedelic Society
The Australian Psychedelic Society (APS) is an organisation seeking to connect Australia's psychedelic community to benefit, enjoy and contribute to their culture in a safe and supportive environment. The APS is part of a larger global movement with psychedelic societies already established in several places in the USA, UK and other European nations. By creating a cohesive network, it is hoped that changes in drug policy, education and use will be established based on evidence-based information, rather than fear-based propaganda.
