Commercial Opportunities for Mycology

Sustainable Industry, Protein Production and Next Gen Neuro Drugs

As you know we normally hold our ordinary meeting on the second Tuesday of each month, and more recently these have been digital meetings via ZOOM. We have postponed our September 2020 meeting by one week (from the 8th to the 15th of September), in order to secure our guest speaker.

Nikita Alexandrov
Nikita Alexandrov is a chemist and life sciences entrepreneur with experience in mycology. Having studied mycology under Dr. Kathy Lawrence at Auburn University, Nikita went on to work with a number of commercial mycology operations such as Aloha Medicinals, the largest producer of cordyceps at the time. He went on to found a biotechnology company in molecular diagnostics and then a mycology company which specialised in large scale production equipment and operated projects in neuropharmacology of psychedelic derivatives for mental health. Working with a number of companies in Canada, Nikita has seen the genesis of the commercial psychedelic industry from the inside.

Chermside Hills is one of the Queensland Mycological Society’s regular foray areas.

The term Chermside Hills may be understood in two ways – the reference to the hilly western regions of the suburb or to the largest of the three reserves, Chermside Hills, Raven St and Milne Hill. QMS forays may be held in any part of the three reserves. Many fungi of different types have been observed in these areas.

For more information about the foray site, go to our page on Chermside Hills.
