MAPS Shares Research Results with Doctors and Therapists at Veterans Administration and UCSF
The promising results that MAPS is seeing in our ongoing MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD research program is getting unprecedented attention from the scientists, doctors, and psychotherapists most involved in finding effective treatments for PTSD.
On May 31, 2012, psychiatrist Michael Mithoefer, M.D., presented information about our initial studies of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD and our ongoing study in veterans with the staff at the National Center for PTSD at the Palo Alto Veterans Administration. On June 1, Dr. Mithoefer had the honor of presenting our promising research results at the San Francisco Veterans Administration Medical Center Mental Health Services’ Grand Rounds.
On the evening of May 31, MAPS hosted a tremendously successful free lecture and discussion at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center. Psychiatrist Michael Mithoefer, M.D., and MAPS founder Rick Doblin, Ph.D., shared the most recent research results from our ongoing series of Phase 2 clinical studies of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD with over 200 attendees in a standing-room only lecture hall. We also announced the recent $5 million bequest from the estate of software pioneer Ashawna Hailey.
