“This is an exciting day for all of us at Numinus,” says Numinus CEO Payton Nyquvest. “Dr. Wood is a recognized leader in the area of addiction research and treatment and he will play a central role in advancing the Numinus mission to help people heal and be well.”
As Chief Medical Officer with Numinus, Dr. Wood will play a lead role in helping to establish the evolving Numinus models of care, including defining and hiring the medical and therapeutic team. He will also lead the design of an interdisciplinary medical education program, serve as the company’s primary representative in all research partnerships and protocol development, work with regulators and health authority leadership to advance psychedelic therapies, and help ensure Numinus centres operate within all medical and regulatory guidelines.
“I share the Numinus position that the societal costs of mental illness, addiction, trauma and unmet human potential are much too high,” says Dr. Wood. “My work and the work of others in the field indicate the value of continuing to explore the use of psychedelic substances in safe, controlled therapeutic environments to address these issues, and I look forward to positioning Numinus as a leader in this emerging area of treatment.”
Dr. Wood has had a longstanding interest in psychedelic assisted psychotherapy through his involvement with the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) trial of MDMA assisted psychotherapy and through emerging work examining the potential of psilocybin assisted psychotherapy for a range of mental health disorders.

Dr. Wood has previously been the Physician Program Director for Addiction Services at Providence Health Care, Medical Director for Community Addiction Services at Vancouver Coastal Health, and the founding Director of North America’s largest clinical and research fellowship training programs for addiction medicine physicians based at UBC.
Throughout his career, Dr. Wood has played an instrumental role in bringing research ideas from the laboratory into routine use in the health care system. He was the lead author of the first study to show that HIV treatment could prevent the transmission of HIV infection among those who inject drugs which contributed to a revision of international therapeutic guidelines. Dr. Wood was also the founding principal investigator of Insite, North America’s medically supervised safer injecting facility — a life saving intervention now common in most large Canadian cities. His work in the area of addiction treatment has contributed to the development of innovative and widely adopted provincial and national therapeutic guidelines . In addition to leading transformative health system interventions, Dr. Wood has been regularly funded by the US National Institute on Drug Abuse and has co-authored more than 400 scientific papers.
