Dr. Tony Nader, MD, PhD
Patron of the congress
Dr. Tony Nader, MD, PhD received his M.D. degree from the American University of Beirut. His Ph.D. is in the area of Brain and Cognitive Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and he completed post-doctoral work as a Clinical and Research Fellow in Neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Nader has written two ground-breaking books: Human Physiology: Expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature and Ramayan in Human Physiology. In his latest book Dr. Nader’s scientific analysis finds the ancient epic of the Ramayan (from the Itihas aspect of the Vedic Literature) to be a precise scientific description of how our body functions and evolves.
His interest in natural health care led him, while at MIT, to conduct research on Maharishi AyurVeda herbal and mineral preparations, investigating their safety, effects on memory and behaviour, and their ability to prevent ageing and disease.
