Dr. Newberg is Director of Clinical Nuclear Medicine, Director of NeuroPET
Research, and Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology at the Hospital
of the University of Pennsylvania. Upon graduating from the University of
Pennsylvania School of Medicine in 1993, Dr. Newberg trained in Internal

experiences. The results and implications of this research are delineated in Dr.
Newbergs book, Why God Wont Go Away (Ballantine/Random House).
