As we’ve made clear to our investors, a core aspect of Red Light Holland’s overall mission is to promote the study and research of the benefits of psilocybin. Adding Dr. Geraci to our team puts us in a position where we are now one step closer to trying to make a difference to alleviate humans suffering across the world,” said Todd Shapiro, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Director.

Red Light Holland can have a massive impact on healthcare and it excites me to be able to help light the way into this future for them.”
