We look forward to their contributions as we pursue increased visibility across these additional markets.”
An accomplished biopharmaceutical executive with a proven track record across numerous therapeutic and functional areas, Bartlone brings impressive quality assurance, regulatory affairs, product development, compliance, and commercial operation experience to his new role. Prior to joining Cybin, Bartlone served as both president and managing director for AB Dynamix LLC.

Bartlone has also worked at UCB Inc., a global pharmaceutical company, and Eli Lilly. He has developed global teams of more than 1,000 colleagues in 50 different countries and has successfully driven more than 25 small and large molecular therapies and drug-device combination products to the global marketplace.
A well-known leader in the field of psychedelic research, Belser has invaluable insight and expertise as an investigator on NYU and Yale University clinical trials of psilocybin and MDMA designed to treat depression, anxiety, substance use, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and end-of-life distress. A former chief clinical officer at Adelia Therapeutics, Belser directed the clinical program investigating tryptamines and phenethylamines for a variety of treatment indications.
In addition, Belser is the founding president of Nautilus Sanctuary, the first nonprofit center for psychedelic medicine in the Eastern United States, and is a recognized expert on psychedelic medicine, having authored a dozen peer-reviewed publications and delivered more than 50 lectures, presentations, and grand rounds on psychedelic topics.
In addition, Cybin also noted that cofounder and former COO Paul Glavine will assume the role of chief growth officer and John Kanakis, cofounder and former SVP of business development, will assume the role of chief business officer.
“Paul and John’s extensive entrepreneurial experience was instrumental in shaping the initial formation of Cybin and the company’s subsequent emergence as a leader within the psychedelics space,” Drysdale stated. “Their deep commitment to Cybin’s mission will continue as they assume these new roles and will allow them to further accelerate business-development and investor-awareness initiatives. We believe these appointments are an important step in taking Cybin to the next level.”
