We are very lucky to welcome Ziv Shafir, JD, MBA, MS to our next AMA (Ask-Me-Anything) on Wednesday, May 6th from 4:30-6pm PT.
Ziv is an expert on the legal and business side of psychedelic medicine.
Ziv Shafir studied molecular and cellular biology at UC Berkeley before moving to Stanford, where he obtained a M.S. in molecular immunology. Ziv then obtained an MBA from Stanford Business School and a JD (Doctor of Law) from Stanford Law School. He is licensed by the State Bar of California.
For the past eight years, Ziv has helped teach a well-regarded seminar at Stanford Business School entitled “Leading Strategic Change in Healthcare” alongside Dr. Robert Pearl, former CEO of The Permanente Medical Group, and Robert Burgelman, Professor of Strategy. Ziv blends together science, business and law, having performed immunology research as a graduate student at Stanford, worked as a medical device reviewer at the FDA, advised numerous healthcare startups as an attorney at Fenwick & West, and worked at various other reputable law firms.
Ziv has taken a professional interest in psychedelic medicine after seeing first-hand how powerful psychedelic medicine can be in creating transformations. His expertise in psychedelic medicine is augmented by his rich background in healthcare law and experience at the FDA.
