Lecture & Workshop

The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid and Vapour
with Dr. Gerald Pollack

Rollin Becker Memorial Lecture

Location: Imperial College, LONDON
Duration: 2 hours
Price: £25
Entry criteria: Open
Next delivery: 2 December 2017 (5:00 - 7:00pm - provisional)

In this year's Rollin Becker Memorial Lecture, our special guest speaker, Dr Gerald Pollack, will be sharing his findings on The Fourth Phase of Water and how it explains common, everyday phenomena which are often seen but rarely understood.

Together with his colleagues at the University of Washington, he has discovered that water is not always H2O and that, when in contact with most surfaces, it transforms into H3O, or Exclusion Zone water. With much of our osteopathic work resonating with fluid dynamics and Sutherland's use of such expressions as fluid within the fluid, liquid light, the tide and fluctuations of fluids, this is an exciting and significant development.

RBML Workshop

Location: British College of Osteopathic Medicine, LONDON
Duration: 1 day
Price: £165 (£145 Fellows/Members)
Entry criteria: SCCO M2 + 2 Pathway courses or equal
Next delivery: 3 December 2017 (9:00am - 5:00pm provisional)

There will be a new and we hope exciting format to the workshop following the RBML. Mark Wilson and Colin Dove have worked together with Dr Pollack to produce an investigation into certain physiological processes vital to us in our work. Palpatory enquiries will be launched before and after input from Dr Pollack.  We hope the outcome will be a richer understanding of the processes at work beneath our feeling, thinking fingers so that they might become even more knowing!

Dr Gerald Pollack PhD

GeraldPollack.jpgProfessor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington, Dr. Gerald Pollack is an international leader in the field of water research. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. Since then, his research interests have ranged broadly over the scientific spectrum, from cardiac dynamics and electrophysiology, to muscle contraction, cell biology, and more recently to the role of water in nature.

Currently Dr. Pollack runs the Pollack Laboratory at the University of Washington, which focuses on uncovering some of nature’s most deeply held secrets. He is also the Editor-In-Chief of the scientific journal WATER, a multidisciplinary research journal that brings together water-oriented research from diverse disciplines.

Professor Pollack has earned many distinctions, medals, and honors. He was awarded the highest faculty honor bestowed by his university, the Annual Award Lectureship at the University of Washington in 2008. 

In his spare time in Seattle, he enjoys gardening, cooking, skiing, and ruminating on subjects as diverse as the origin of weather, the molecular basis of brain function, and solving the world’s crises (water, energy, health). He has also been known to build ponds, harpsichords, and tree houses. [SOURCE]
