Stephen Adler (b. 1939 in New York City) is an American physicist specializing in elementary particles and field theory. He received an A.B. degree at Harvard University in 1961 and a Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1964. He became a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in 1966, becoming a full Professor of Theoretical Physics in 1969, and was named "New Jersey Albert Einstein Professor" at the institute in 1979. He has won the J. J. Sakurai Prize from the American Physical Society in 1988, and the Dirac Medal of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in 1998, among other awards. Adler's seminal papers on high energy neutrino processes, current algebras, soft pion theorems, sum rules, and perturbation theory anomalies helped lay the foundations for the current standard model of elementary particle physics.

Jan Walleczek Ph.D. is Director of the Fetzer Franklin Fund, and a Trustee of the John E. Fetzer Memorial Trust. He lives in Berlin, Germany, where he founded Phenoscience Laboratories. Previously he was Director of the Bioelectromagnetics Laboratory at Stanford University Medical School, Palo Alto, California. Jan Walleczek studied biology at the University of Innsbruck in Austria, followed by doctoral work at the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, and post-doctoral work at the Research Medicine and Radiation Biophysics Division of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California at Berkeley. His research interests are diverse, and his scientific publications cover the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics. His work focuses on the foundations of quantum mechanics and the application to living systems of concepts such as quantum coherence, emergent dynamics, and the flow of information, a long-standing interest which he summarized as an edited volume for Cambridge University press titled “Self-organized biological dynamics and nonlinear control”. In addition to metascience and advanced research design, his professional interests include the philosophy and the foundations of science.
Jeff Tollaksen is a Professor of Physics and Director of the Center for Excellence in Quantum Studies at Chapman University. He received his BA in physics from MIT. He later attended Boston University where he earned a MA and PhD in theoretical physics. Before teaching at Chapman University, Tollaksen worked in the School of Computational Science at George Mason University. He has published over a dozen articles in various scientific journals and has conducted research via five grants on which he is the prime investigator. (source: Chapman University)
