Kim Kuypers

Kim Kuypers is a researcher at Maastricht University. Her work is concerned with understanding the neurobiology underlying flexible cognition, empathy, and well-being. One of the main ways she does is with the use of psychedelics.


Kim P. C. Kuypers studies the effects of MDMA on cognition. A research grant she obtained in 2011 helped her to set up her own research line in which she chose to shift her focus from negative drug effects to positive effects of drugs and the underlying neurobiology.

Part of the work done at Maastricht University is sponsored by the Beckley Foundation (article).
