Corine de Boer, M.D., Ph.D.
Chief Medical Officer
Corine de Boer, M.D., Ph.D. is the Chief Medical Officer at MAPS Public Benefit Corporation.
She received her medical degree from Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands and completed residency and fellowship training in pediatrics and pediatric nephrology. Her Ph.D. was focused on peritoneal dialysis in children, and she joined the academic staff at the Radboud University after completing her training.
Before moving to the United States in 2000, she worked as a Pediatrician in the largest inner-city hospital (OLVG) in Amsterdam where she was responsible for in- and outpatient care in a multi-racial patient group including sickle-cell disease, thalassemia, and AIDS.
For the last 20 years, she has contributed to the development of meningococcal and hepatitis vaccines during her tenure at GSK vaccines (formerly Novartis Vaccines and Chiron Corporation) and Dynavax prior to starting her own consulting company where she provides strategic advice and support for a variety of clients working on biologics, small molecule/polymer therapeutics and vaccines.
She feels very fortunate to formally join the MAPS team after assisting them previously in the development of the Pediatric Plans for MDMA. The opportunity that psychedelics provide in the treatment of PTSD and other indications is an exciting scientific field where she feels honored to play a small part in.
Corine resides in beautiful Port Townsend, WA, with her husband and her Jack Russell Terrier where she can be found roaming the beaches, making (wearable) recycled art, and messing around in rowing shells and other boats.
