Interesting FSM Case Study Presentations


Gerald Pollack – It’s Not Liquid, It’s Water: #304
Gerald Pollack

Gerald Pollack received his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. He then joined the University of Washington faculty and is now a professor of Bioengineering. He is also Founding Editor-in-Chief of the journal, WATER, convener of the Annual Conference on the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology of Water, and Executive Director of the Institute for Venture Science.

His interests have ranged broadly, from biological motion and cell biology to the interaction of biological surfaces with aqueous solutions. His 1990 book, Muscles and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion, won an “Excellence Award” from the Society for Technical Communication. His 2001 book, Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life, and his newest book, The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor won that Society’s “Distinguished Award,” their highest distinction. The latter book went on to receive the World Summit Excellence Award.

Pollack received an honorary doctorate in 2002 from Ural State University in Ekaterinburg, Russia, and was more recently named an Honorary Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and foreign member and Academician of the Srpska Academy. He received the Biomedical Engineering Society’s Distinguished Lecturer Award in 2002. In 2008, his colleagues chose him as the recipient of his university’s highest annual distinction: the UW Faculty Lecturer Award.

Pollack is a Founding Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and a Fellow of both the American Heart Association and the Biomedical Engineering Society. He received an NIH Director’s Transformative R01 Award. He was the 2012 recipient of the Prigogine Medal for thermodynamics of dissipative systems, and in 2014 he received the Scientific Excellence Award from the World Academy of Neural Therapy, as well as the Dinsdale Prize from the Society for Scientific Exploration. He has presented two TEDx talks on water. In 2015, he won the Brandlaureate Award, previously bestowed on notables such as Nelson Mandela, Hillary Clinton, and Steve Jobs. In 2016 he was awarded the 1st Emoto Peace Prize. And, he appears briefly in the 2016 Travis Rice sports-action film, The Fourth Phase, named after his recent book.

Jim Oshman

Professor Jim Oschman is the author of a ground-breaking series of articles on “healing energy” published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies. These articles have now been developed into two books, Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis and Energy Medicine in Therapeutics and Human Performance. These two books give the most skeptical academic scientists a theoretical basis for exploring the physiology and biophysics of energy medicines.

Dr. Oschman has both the academic credentials and the background in alternative therapies to carry out his explorations. He has degrees in Biophysics and Biology from the University of Pittsburgh. He has worked in major research labs around the world. These include Cambridge University in England, Case-Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, the University of Copenhagen, Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, where he was on the faculty, and the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, where he was a staff scientist.

Juliana Mortenson

Juliana Mortenson is a physician physicist, in the proud tradition of Heinrich Helmholtz. She has had a life-long interest in the interactions of energy fields with biologic organisms. Dr. Mortenson began her studies at The Ohio State University in microbiology and was admitted to medical school at Ohio State as an early admission student, without a bachelor’s degree. In 1982 Dr. Mortenson graduated with both a

B.S and an M.D.A chance contact with Robert Becker, author of The Body Electric, prompted Dr. Mortenson to pursue her life-long interest in the interactions of energy fields with biologic organisms. She left the university and did part-time clinical work, while she set up a laboratory in her basement. Dr. Mortenson found an angel investor and together they established Berkshire Laboratories, where she performed groundbreaking research in the fields of resonance science, and energy fields and waves. What began as a keen interest in biologics broadened to chemistry, materials, crystallization, and foundational physics. Berkshire eventually grew into General Resonance, where Dr. Mortenson extended her resonance work down into the nano-scale range. Her original discoveries enabled the development of the nanoparticle technology now used by Clene Nanomedicine, to make new treatments with few or no side effects for diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Arthritis.
