"Julie Beischel, PhD, received her doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology with a minor in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Arizona in 2003. Dr. Beischel was the first recipient of the William James Post-doctoral Fellowship in Mediumship and Survival Research at the University of Arizona where she served as Co-Director of the VERITAS Research Program until that program closed at the end of 2007.
"In January 2008, Dr. Beischel moved the research, the participants, and the screening and training of prospective research mediums to the Windbridge Institute, which she co-founded. Her research interests center on the survival-of- consciousness hypothesis and include proof-focused studies of mediums' communication with discarnates and process-focused studies of mediums' experiences of that communication. Beischel's academic training in several interdisciplinary scientific fields allows her to design and apply traditional research methods to investigating these more unconventional topics of study.
"Beischel is currently a member of the Society for Scientific Exploration and the Parapsychological Association, she serves on the scientific advisory boards of the Rhine Research Center and the Forever Family Foundation, and is an Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) Luminary. She has published peer-reviewed articles in journals including Journal of Scientific Exploration, Transpersonal Psychology Review, Journal of Parapsychology, Australian Journal of Parapsychology, and Explore: the Journal of Science and Healing."
