Professor Carin Muhr, M.D.,Ph.D., is Associate Professor of clinical Neurology, at Uppsala University in Sweden and an Honorary Professor at Universidad San Martin de Porres, Lima, Peru. She is president of Tarab Institute International and of Tarab Institute Sweden, a member of the Academic Advisory Board of Tarab Ling, Dehradun. Dr Muhr has shared her professional time between clinical neurology, teaching and research with special interest in Neuroendocrinology including research with PET and MRI, mainly in pituitary tumors and migraine, with a PhD in 1981 and scientific publications within these fields.
Dr Muhr works with research ethics and is a visiting professor in Bioethics at St George’s University, Grenada and has collaborated with Christian Medical College, Vellore, India and Universidad San Martin de Porres, Lima, Peru, and established international courses addressing Human rights issues in medicine with a gender perspective, which has stimulated her to further search for a holistic perspective in medicine.
Together with Dr Muhr’s studies in Buddhist Psychology, ”Unity in Duality”, and teachings in Neuroscience at ”Science weeks” at Drepung Monastery in Mundgod and Bylakuppe, and Dharamsala and in ”Science meets Dharma Dialogue” at DLIHE, Bangalore she has become increasingly aware of the vast knowledge available in the Buddhist Inner science. Dr Muhr is convinced that medical science and practice would benefit greatly if a broader perspective including an increased awareness of everything’s interrelatedness would be taken into account.
