Dr. Konstantin Korotkov

Konstantin Korotkov, PhD, Professor, is Professor of Computer Science and Biophysics at St.Petersburg University of Informational Technologies, Mechanics and Optics in Russia and a senior researcher at St. Petersburg Research institute of Physical Activity and Sport. He has published over 400 papers in leading journals on physics and biology(you can find it in the researh section of the IUMAB website or just click here), and he holds 15 patents on biophysics inventions. He is the author of 12 books, translated to many European languages, including “The Energy of Health”, «The Energy of Consciousness», «The Energy of Space», «Electrophotonic Analysis in Medicine», «Light after Life», “The Energy of Health”, “The Emerging Science of Water” and others. You may find some of them at Amazon.com or in the book section.


Prof. Korotkov has led a research career for over 40 years, combining rigorous scientific method with an insatiable curiosity about things of the spirit and the soul with deep respect for all life. He has given lectures, seminars and training sessions in 56 countries, presenting papers and workshops at more than 100 national and international conferences. At the V Congress of the International Union of Medical and Applied Bioelectrography (IUMAB) in Curitiba, Brasil, Dr.Korotkov was elected as President of the IUMAB by the world’s most prominent researchers.

 Dr. Korotkov is recipient of several Russian and international prestigious awards, including the Brand Laureate International Brand Personality Award 2013 from Asia Pacific Brands Foundation, Ministry of Sport of Russia Award 2013 and 2017, President of Sri-Lanka Award 2010, President Putin Award 2014, Sultan of Bali Award 2016, Peace Flag Ambassador in Argentina 2017 and others.


His technique, Electrophotonic Imaging (EPI), also called Gas Discharge Visualization technique (GDV), is a breakthrough in Kirlian photography for direct, real-time viewing of the human energy system. This technology allows one to capture by a video camera electro-photonic glow from an individual, plants, liquids, powders, inanimate objects and translate this into a computerized model. This allows researcher and client to see imbalances that may be influencing an individual’s well-being greatly facilitating the analysis of the cause of any existing imbalances showing the area of the body and the organ systems involved. One of the greatest benefits to date is the ability to do “real-time” measurements of a variety of treatments for different conditions. Even though GDV is not a medical system and is able to analyze only stress and energy it is being applied in many fields: medicine, psychology, sound therapy, biophysics, genetics, forensic science, agriculture, ecology, etc.


The latest instrument, Bio-Well GDV Camera, is being produced in Hong Kong. This instrument has EU, UL and FDA certifications. The GDV technique is accepted by Russian Ministry of Sport as one of the key technologies for sport, more than 5000 doctors, practitioners and researchers benefit from using this technology worldwide.
