Clara Schüler was co-coordinating and co-editing the MIND Blog until June 2021 with the aim to educate and inform about different aspects of the psychedelic experience, psychedelic research, and related fields.
In 2018, she graduated from Heidelberg University with a Master of Science in Molecular Biosciences and is currently pursuing her PhD in cognitive developmental neuroscience at the Max Planck Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig. Her research focuses on the neural basis of the emergence of a self-concept and its relation to understanding other people’s perspectives. Clara has professional experience through various research internships and assistant positions. She is engaged in the non-profit project Zen Lab in Leipzig, exploring meaningful and lively inner attitudes through meditation practice.
With the MIND Foundation’s work, she hopes to cultivate an open but critical discourse on psychedelics facilitating future research to establish who could benefit from psychedelic-assisted therapy with the overarching aspiration to move towards a more connected, mindful, and healthy society.
