Julie Beischel received her doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology with a minor in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Arizona in 2003 where she later served as the William James Post-doctoral Fellow in Mediumship and Survival Research and Co-Director of the VERITAS Research Program until that program closed at the end of 2007. At that time, she and her husband Mark Boccuzzi founded the Windbridge Institute for Applied Research in Human Potential in order to continue performing important research on phenomena including the continuation of consciousness after death and the experiences of and information reported by psychic mediums (individuals who experience regular communication with the dead). The Windbridge Institute, where she serves as Director of Research, is currently based in Tucson, Arizona, but Windbridge research participants are located all over the country.
Dr. Beischel is a full member of the Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE) and the Parapsychological Association (PA) and serves on the scientific advisory boards of the Rhine Research Center (RRC) and the Forever Family Foundation (FFF). Her research has been presented at scientific meetings of the SSE, the PA, the RRC, the FFF, the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness, and the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine (ISSSEEM) as well as the Toward a Science of Consciousness and Alternative Expressions of the Numinous conferences. Her work has been published in peer-reviewed journals including EXPLORE: The Journal of Science and Healing, Journal of Parapsychology, Journal of Scientific Exploration, Transpersonal Psychology Review, and Australian Journal of Parapsychology.
Dr. Beischel contributed the article "Talking to the Dead: Laboratory Investigation of Mediumship" to the Shift magazine issue "Death: Window to the Infinite" (#17) and was an invited speaker at the 2009 IONS International Conference in Tucson, Arizona.
