Bruce Harold Lipton (born October 21, 1944 at Mount Kisco, New York), is an American developmental biologist who supported the theory that gene expression could be influenced (via epigenetics) by environmental factors i.e. environmental factors have a greater impact on their health than genetic research has previously determined.


Lipton received a B.A. in biology from C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University in 1966 and a PhD in developmental biology from the University of Virginia in 1971.[1] From 1973 to 1982, he taught anatomy at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine, before joining St. George's University School of Medicine as a professor of anatomy for three years.[1] Lipton has said that sometime in the 1980s he abandoned his lifelong atheism and came to believe that the way cells functioned demonstrated the existence of God.[2]

From 1987 to 1992, Lipton was involved in research at Penn State and Stanford University Medical Center.[1] Since 1993, Lipton has been teaching in non-tenure positions at different universities.[1] His publications consist mainly of research on the development of muscle cells.[3]

Lipton has appeared as a guest on several radio shows, as well as The Elaine Smitha Show and The Joe Rogan Experience podcast,[4][5] and was featured in the 2009 documentary Kymatica, discussing the concepts of love and fear in their relation to the body.[6] He was the recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, "in recognition of his pioneering work in the field of New Biology"[7] He has been a speaker at the Institute of Noetic Sciences' 13th international conference,[8] the Spiritual Science Fellowship International Conference,[9] and various other conventions.[10][11]


A 2010 publication asserted that Lipton remains on the sidelines of conventional discussions of epigenetics, basically ignored by mainstream science.[12]

Lipton has been criticized and called a “quack” by surgical oncologist David Gorski.[13]
