Beverly Rubik earned her Ph.D. in biophysics in 1979 at the University of California at Berkeley. She has had a life-long interest in frontier areas of science and medicine that go beyond the mainstream, and she is internationally renowned for her pioneering work. She was director of the Center for Frontier Sciences at Temple University from 1988-95, where she explored the role of consciousness in the physical world; bioelectromagnetics; and alternative and complementary medicine. From 1992-97, she was one of 18 Congressionally-appointed members of the Program Advisory Board to the Office of Alternative Medicine (precursor to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine) at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), and chaired the NIH panels on bioelectromagnetic medicine and manual healing modalities. In 1996, Dr. Rubik founded the Institute for Frontier Science, a nonprofit institute for research and education funded initially by Laurance S. Rockefeller, Sr. and later supported by NIH, which is presently in Emeryville, California. Recently published original research includes studies on brainwaves and bliss; the human biofield and biofield therapies; and functional water in relation to health. Presently she is conducting research on human exposure to cell phone radiation; exploring the extremely low-level light emitted from organisms; and developing novel physical sensors for various field properties of the living state.
Dr. Rubik has published over 80 papers and 2 books. She serves on the editorial boards of Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine; Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine; Integrative Medicine Insights; and the Journal of Vortex Science and Technology. She is also an adjunct faculty member for masters and doctoral students at California Institute of Integral Studies; Saybrook University; and Energy Medicine University. Beverly Rubik has won several awards for her scientific research and has been widely interviewed, including on the popular television program, “Good Morning America” (ABC-TV). She also serves as a consultant on maverick projects in the corporate world and to integrative health clients.
