Bruce H. Lipton PhD is a research scientist and former medical school professor known for his award-winning medical school lectures. He is a recognized leader in bridging science and spirit, began his scientific career as a cell biologist. After receiving his Ph.D. he joined the Dept. of Anatomy at University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973. Dr. Lipton’s research focused on muscular dystrophy, and the molecular mechanisms controlling cell behavior. Together with a colleague, developed a tissue transplantation technique and was published in the journal Science.
In 1982, Dr. Lipton began examining quantum physics and how it might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems. He produced breakthrough studies on the cell membrane. His research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, between 1987 and 1992, revealed that the environment, operating though the membrane, controlled the cell, turning genes on and off. Two major scientific publications derived from these studies defined the molecular pathways connecting the mind and body.
Not having been a spiritual person, Dr. Lipton’s unique scientific approach transformed his personal life as well. His new understanding of cell biology showed how the mind controls bodily functions, and implied the existence of an immortal spirit. He applied this science to his personal biology, and discovered that his physical well-being improved, and the quality and character of his daily life was greatly enhanced. This information, Dr. Lipton now incorporates into his award-winning medical school lectures to conventional and complementary medical professionals and lay audiences, teaching how leading-edge science dovetails with mind-body medicine and spiritual principles and function with each other flawlessly.
