VANCOUVER, Dec. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clearmind Medicine Inc. (Nasdaq: CMND), (CSE: CMND), (FSE: CWY) (“Clearmind” or the "company"), a biotech company focused on discovery and development of novel psychedelic-derived therapeutics to solve major undertreated health problems, today announced the appointment of seasoned regulatory executive Nicholas Kadysh as special advisor for the development of MEAI as an alcohol substitute.

Kadysh, a former executive at Red Bull Canada and Juul Labs Canada, is a career expert on navigating complex regulatory challenges in the health and food industry. He is the founder of PharmAla Biotech, which manufactures MDMA- and MDXX-class molecules for pharmaceutical research, and the Board Chair of Psychedelics Canada, the trade association for the for-profit, legal Canadian psychedelics industry.

"Nick brings invaluable knowledge of corporate affairs and regulations. We are thrilled to have him join the company and contribute from his vast experience to our alcohol substitute program," said Dr. Adi Zuloff- Shani, Clearmind's Chief Executive Officer.
