About William Bushell, PhD
William Bushell, PhD, is a biophysical/medical anthropologist and has been researching the health enhancing effects of yoga, meditation, and behavioral health practices for decades. His research has explored how these practices enhance the immune system, with a particular focus on infectious disease. During this time he has collaborated with leading figures in immunology, psychoneuroimmunology, and nonwestern cultures, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Nobel Prize winning scientists. He was an affiliate researcher at MIT for 26 years, and presently serves as a research director at the Whole Health Institute. He recently co-authored a paper with a team from Harvard, UCSD, and several other leading universities, which sets forth a groundbreaking framework based on decades of cross-disciplinary research for yoga as an adjunct treatment for COVID-19. He and his collaborators are continuing to further develop this model.
