John Hagelin, Ph.D.

John Hagelin, Ph.D., is a world-renowned quantum physicist, educator, author, and leading proponent of peace.

Dr. Hagelin conducted pioneering research at CERN (the European Center for Particle Physics) and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. He is responsible for the develop­ment of a highly successful grand unified field theory based on the superstring. His articles on electroweak unification, grand unification, super-symmetry and cosmology include some of the most cited references in the physical sciences.

In addition, Dr. Hagelin has spent much of the past quarter century leading a scientific investigation into the foundations of human consciousness. He is one of the world’s preeminent researchers on the effects of meditation on brain development, and the use of collective meditation to defuse acute societal stress, to reduce associated crime and violence, and to promote societal peace.

In recognition of his outstanding achievements, Dr. Hagelin was named winner of the prestigious Kilby Award, which recognizes scientists who have made “major contributions to society through their applied research in the fields of science and technology.” The award recognized Dr. Hagelin as “a scientist in the tradition of Einstein, Jeans, Bohr and Eddington.”

Dr. Hagelin is President of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace.
He received his A.B. summa cum laude from Dartmouth College in 1975
and his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1981. He also serves as President,
professor of physics, and director of the Institute of Science, Technology and
Public Policy at Maharishi University of Management in Iowa, USA.
