Bob Good, Executive Director
It is an honor to be the first Executive Director of the International Association of the Science of Reincarnation. Many people have worked to create this organization and none more important than the scientists who have done hard science work to bring us where we are today.
Our organization’s goal is to not only fund and support research into reincarnation but to educate. There is an intersection of technology, cognitive sciences and belief systems, religions, which will change and sculpt our future.
Our job here at the association is to support the science being done in this area and to present that narrative and explanation. We welcome discussion and analysis and respect all faiths and belief systems. What we are discovering scientifically supports a religion’s belief in an afterlife.
But a common consensus view of the afterlife is emerging from NDE experiencers, children who recall prior lives and people who have gone through past life regression. This is supported by narratives from mediums, DNA evidence and new and more complete understanding from the fields of physics, medicine and technology.
Our job here at the association is to present this information in a meaningful way to a global population. This science affects us all in the same way. If you are human this science presents the most probable scientific case for the afterlife. We have much work to do but truly the future is ours to shape.
Dean Radin, born February 29, 1952, is a parapsychologist. Following a bachelor and master’s degree in electrical engineering and a PhD in educational psychology, Radin worked at Bell Labs, researched at Princeton University, GTE Laboratories, University of Edinburgh, SRI International, Interval Research Corporation, and was a faculty member at University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Radin then became Senior Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences†(IONS), in Petaluma, California, USA. Radin served on dissertation committees at Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center, and was former President of the Parapsychological Association. He is also co-editor-in-chief of the journal Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing.
Radin was elected President of the Parapsychological Association in 1988, 1993, 1998, and 2005 and has published a number of articles and parapsychological papers supporting the existence of paranormal phenomena, as well as two books directed to a popular audience: The Conscious Universe and Entangled Minds. Radin believes that parapsychology is as repeatable as any science but that it is also, as paraphrased by sociologist Erich Goode, “elusive, subtle and complex”, a field of study that is “difficult to replicate” and “our understanding of it is incomplete”.

She also has expertise in database development for clinical research and pilot programs, with practical data management strategies that have helped to make digital data collection accessible to a wide range of audiences.
Lyz has a great personal interest in reincarnation research and other unexplained paranormal phenomena. Her years of experience working in sleep medicine have allowed her to understand how robust research can be designed and implemented in fields where huge ‘Why” questions remain to be answered, but research can still be effective at pushing understanding toward these big picture questions nonetheless. She brings her array of expertise in research implementation and funding processes to the IASOR team.
