The next wave in psychedelic drug development

our purpose

We are driven by patient outcomes.

Tryp Therapeutics focuses on areas of unmet medical need where other treatments have fallen short.

Healthier, happier patients.

Millions of people suffer from health conditions like chronic pain, for which few or no effective treatment options currently exist.

Each one of these conditions is a humanitarian need—and an unaddressed market opportunity.

Our pharmaceutical focus on psilocybin has the potential to transform the treatment of chronic pain and other indications, and relieve the suffering of millions of patients.

Soothing chronic conditions while limiting side effects.

our strategy

Addressing unmet needs with proven potential.

Leading research institutions have been investigating the promise of psilocybin to transform the treatment of chronic pain and other indications for years.



We are addressing indications with critical, unmet medical needs that most psychedelic drug development companies are not.


We have proprietary and differentiated methods for manufacturing, formulating, dosing and administering psychedelic compounds.


We have the right scientific and executive team to successfully deliver new therapies to patients.

Tryp Therapeutics is one of the first players to help realize this promise, leading the next wave of psychedelic drug development that extends beyond mental health.

First-to-market, then on to scale.

Tryp is developing psilocybin-based treatments for chronic pain indications and eating disorders.

We are already on the cusp of our first major clinical milestones.

Our sole focus on psilocybin positions us to take advantage of the more than 50 FDA-registered studies firmly establishing the compound’s safety profile.

Our trials are expected to bypass preclinical and Phase 1 studies and move directly to Phase 2a clinical trials within the next several months.
