Born October 21, 1944 / Mount Kisco, New York / Developmental Biologist, Author, Lecturer. 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 the 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 recieved his PhD Degree from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville before joining the Department of Anatomy at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973.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 homologue 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. Dr. Lipton’s scientific approach transformed his personal life as well. His deepened understanding of cell biology highlighted the mechanisms by which the mind controls bodily functions and implied the existence of an immortal spirit. It was at this time that he abandoned his life long atheism in favor of a belief in God.When applying this science to his personal biology, Lipton discovered that his physical well-being improved and the quality of his daily life was greatly enhanced. Dr. Lipton has taken his award winning lectures to the public and is currently a sought after keynote speaker and workshop presenter.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 in the new biology. Dr. Lipton has written several books including the work summarizing his findings entitled The Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution, and his latest book The Honeymoon Effect: The Science of Creating Heaven on Earth.
