Best-Selling Author, Biologist and International Speaker
BRUCE H. LIPTON, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. A stem cell biologist, best-selling author of The Biology of Belief and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences. Dr. Lipton began his scientific career as a cell biologist. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville before joining the Department of Anatomy at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973. Dr. Lipton’s research on muscular dystrophy – studies employing cloned human stem cells – was focused on the molecular mechanisms controlling cell behavior. An experimental tissue transplantation technique developed by Dr. Lipton and colleague Dr. Ed Schultz was published in the journal Science and subsequently employed as a novel form of human genetic engineering.
In 1982, Dr. Lipton began examining the principles of quantum physics and how they might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems. He produced breakthrough studies on the cell membrane, which revealed that this outer layer of the cell was an organic homolog of a computer chip, the cell’s equivalent of a brain. His research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, between 1987 and 1992, revealed that the environment, operating through the membrane, controlled the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and off. His discoveries, which ran counter to the established scientific view that life is controlled by the genes, presaged one of today’s most important fields of study: the science of epigenetics. Two major scientific publications derived from these studies defined the molecular pathways connecting the mind and body. Many subsequent papers by other researchers have since validated his concepts and ideas.
Dr. Lipton has taken his award-winning medical school lectures to the public and is currently a sought-after keynote speaker and workshop presenter. He lectures to conventional and complementary medical professionals and lay audiences about leading-edge science and how it dovetails with mind-body medicine and spiritual principles. He has been heartened by anecdotal reports from hundreds of former audience members who have improved their spiritual, physical and mental well-being by applying the principles he discusses in his lectures. He is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology. Dr. Lipton’s work includes the updated 10th-anniversary edition of The Biology of Belief (Hay House Publishing, softcover), Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There from Here (Hay House Publishing) and The Honeymoon Effect: The Science of Creating Heaven on Earth (Hay House Publishing). His second book, Spontaneous Evolution, Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here. (Hay House Publishing) and his third book, The Honeymoon Effect, The Science of Creating Heaven on Earth. (Hay House Publishing).
