Veterans of War Study Initiated

MAPS clinical research team visited Charleston, South Carolina to initiate the MAPS-sponsored MDMA/PTSD study with veterans. Clinical Research Associate Berra Yazar-Klosinski and Clinical Program Manager Amy Emerson met with Clinical Investigator Michael Mithoefer, M.D., Co-Investigator Annie Mithoefer B.S.N, Site Coordinator Andrew Stufflebean, and Independent Raters Mark Wagner, Ph.D., and Joy Wymer, Ph.D. The team trained the investigators and site staff on the new protocol and developed the framework for the study. The team discussed with the independent raters how to establish inter-rater reliability and develop a training program for other sites, so that a meta-analysis can eventually be done.
