K. Paul Stoller, MD, started his medical career as a pediatrician over two decades ago. Previously, in the early 1970s, he was a University of California President’s Undergraduate Fellow in the Health Sciences, working in the UCLA Department of Anesthesiology and volunteering at the since disbanded Parapsychology Lab at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute. He matriculated at Penn State and AUC and then completed his postgraduate training at UCLA.
His first published works, papers on psychopharmacology, came to print before he entered medical school. During medical school, he was hired to do research for the Humane Society of the United States, and became involved in an effort to prohibit the use of shelter dogs for medical experiments, which made him very unpopular in certain circles when he published an article entitled “Sewer Science and Pound Seizure” in the International Journal for the Study of Animal Problems. He was then invited to become a founding board member of the Humane Farming Association, and served as science editor for the Animal’s Voice Magazine, where he was nominated for a Maggie.
In the mid 1990s, after a friend, head of Apple Computer’s Advanced Technology Group, lapsed into a coma, Dr. Stoller began investigating hyperbaric medicine. Soon after, he started administering hyperbaric oxygen to brain-injured children and adults, including Iraqi vets and retired NFL players with traumatic brain injuries, also pioneering the use of this therapy for treating children with fetal alcohol syndrome. He is a Fellow of the American College of Hyperbaric Medicine and served as president of the International Hyperbaric Medical Association for over a decade.
When his son was killed in a train accident in 2007, he discovered the effectiveness of the hormone oxytocin in treating pathological grief.
Dr. Stoller, as a member of the UCLA Parapsychology Lab, frequently participated in the early psi training groups I conducted. These research groups were the precursors of what later became known as “Remote Viewing”, Dr. Stoller demonstrated and exceptional level of psychic perceptual sensitivity and awareness which was not the norm. Unfortunately, due to his hectic schedule, Dr. Stoller was unable to continue his involvement with this specific area of our lab’s research. His involvement was sorely missed.
