Dr. Tony Nader, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Board
Dr. Tony Nader, MD, PhD, is Chairman of the Board of GUSP, as well as International Director of Brain and Cognitive Science.
Dr. Nader is a world authority on the science of consciousness and the brain, including its application to conflict resolution and peace studies. He is also the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Mathematics and Consciousness, and has published numerous books and scientific papers.
Dr. Nader received his MD degree from the American University of Beirut, where he studied internal medicine and psychiatry. He received his PhD in the area of Brain and Cognitive Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Dr. Nader was a Clinical and Research Fellow in Neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, USA, and Assistant Director of the Clinical Research Center (CRC) at MIT. He conducted research on neurochemistry, neuroendocrinology, and the relationship between diet, age, behavior, mood, seasonal influences, and neurotransmitter and hormonal activity, and on the role of neurotransmitter precursors in medicine.
His interest in the full potential of the human mind led him to the practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM), and he soon began working closely with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the Vedic sage who introduced TM. For years he traveled extensively worldwide as the International President of Maharishi University of Management.
In appreciation for his achievements and profound knowledge of both Vedic Science and modern science, Dr. Nader was honored by Maharishi with the title “Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam” and — as the successor of Maharishi — given responsibility for guiding the Global Country of World Peace, the umbrella organization for all of Maharishi’s worldwide legacy of administration, knowledge, and practical technologies.
