Our guest today is a research scientist and dermatologist (PhD and MD double doc) Dr. Noah Craft! Dr. Craft explains how studying parasitic diseases like Leishmaniasis led to a career as a dermatologist. He also explains why being a scientific researcher is like being an explorer and what it’s like to work on vaccines. Plus, he answers all of our microbiome questions!
Dr. Craft also discusses the studies being done on psychedelic drugs — like MDMA as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and his thoughts on the use of psychedelics.
