Dr. Kurland is a graduate of Caltech (BS, 1951, “with honor”) and Harvard (MS, 1953, PhD, 1956). His scientific career (Carnegie-Mellon, SUNY/AB, Cleveland Clinic, Geisinger Medical Center) has focused on biochemical and biological applications of magnetic resonance, including MRI. Since his conversion in 1995 at the age of 65, he has tried to spread the message through blog posts and ebooks that there is no war between the Catholic Church and science. His motivation is that of St. Augustine (The Trinity 1,8): “It is also necessary—may God grant it!--that in providing others with books to read I myself should make progress, and that in trying to find answers to their questions I myself should find what I am seeking.”
