Kat Ebert, Clinical Study Assistant (CSA) (MAPS PBC)

Kat Ebert earned a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience in 2021 from Michigan State University. Prior to joining MAPS Public Benefit Corporation (MAPS PBC), Kat worked as an undergraduate research assistant where she conducted research on ketamine-induced cystitis using mouse models. Kat also works part-time as the membership coordinator for the Michigan Cannabis Industry Association where she connects licensed cannabis businesses to the largest cannabis lobbying association in the state.

At MAPS PBC, Kat is currently serving as a clinical study assistant, working on the Expanded Access team of Clinical Operations. Kat has authored several presentations on ketamine-induced cystitis, which she conducted research on while she was a student at MSU. Additionally, she co-authored a paper about the dangers of psychedelic exceptionalism in drug policy. She is extremely passionate about drug policy activism, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for Students for Sensible Drug Policy.

Kat joined MAPS PBC in order to help people suffering from PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms heal with psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy. She hopes to one day open her own holistic healing center where she can work as an addiction psychiatrist and heal her patients with psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and other holistic healing methods.

In her free time, she enjoys reading, writing/playing music, and attending music festivals and raves with her friends.
