Bruce H. Lipton
Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit who is best known for the idea that genes are influenced by belief and DNA does not control biology. A stem cell biologist, bestselling 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, receiving 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. Dr. Lipton has taken his award-winning medical school lectures to the public and is currently a sought-after keynote speaker and workshop presenter.
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. His breakthrough studies on the cell membrane showed that the outer layer of the cell is 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, controls the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and off.
Dr. Lipton is considered the Father of Epigenetics as he was the first person to clone cells in a Petrie dish in 1963, using the same community of pluripotent stem cells to create 3 diverse groups of cells. His epiphany was that it was not only the environment that influenced the behavior of the genes, but more importantly, the perception of the environment that essentially created physical outcomes in the body responding to signals from our field of consciousness. Dr. Lipton clearly demonstrated the biological mechanisms of the mind body system in action.
