Meet our international team of mulitdisciplinary researchers:
Beischel, PhD, Co-Founder and Director of Research at the Windbridge
Institute, received her doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology
from the University of Arizona in 2003. She is a full member
of the Parapsychological Association and the Society for Scientific
Exploration, and serves on the scientific advisory boards of
the Rhine Research Center and the Forever Family Foundation.
Following the suicide of her mother and an evidential mediumship
reading, Dr. Beischel forfeited a potentially lucrative career
in the pharmaceutical industry to pursue rigorous scientific
research with mediums full-time. Her research interests include
examinations of the accuracy and specificity of the information
mediums report as well as their experiences, psychology, and
physiology and the potential social applications of mediumship
readings. Dr. Beischel is Adjunct Faculty in the School of Psychology
and Interdisciplinary Inquiry at Saybrook University and Director
of the Survival and Life After Death research department at
the World Institute for Scientific Exploration. She is the author
of Among Mediums: A Scientist's Quest for Answers and
Meaningful Messages: Making the Most of Your Mediumship Reading
and editor of the series From the Mouths of Mediums: Conversations
with Windbridge Certified Research Mediums.
