After several decades of intensive software development to calculate and graph patterns detected in large databases and compute statistical results in both exploratory and confirmatory research designs, breakthrough discoveries were made. When Peter read some of David's writing on these discoveries, they began discussing ways to fully develop this research in the most efficient and sophisticated way through an academically oriented non-profit institute.
The Cosmobiology Institute Board of Directors
The Board of Directors oversees, manages and directs the institute to achieve its mission. The Cosmobiology Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the Greater Good and all policies and programs are developed in accordance with this guiding principle. Board members are required to attend quarterly meetings and contribute to the success of the institute.

Advisory Boards: There are 3 Advisory Boards. Advisors can volunteer suggestions, insights and ideas in their area of expertise. Advisors are also consulted on all plans and activities related to the particular Advisory Board
Research and Software Advisory Committee
Scientific Research is the foremost function of the Cosmobiology Institute. Making available research software and providing training in research methods for cosmbiology research are very high priorities.

Education Advisory Board
Cosmbiology is a rigorous, fully evidence-based discipline that functions according to the high standards of other academic evidence-based disciplines. There are plans to establish a BA degree program in cosmobiology. Providing training programs in research and theoretical foundations for the research are also important functions of the Cosmobiology Institutre.

Peter G. Neumann and David Cochrane are the founding members of the Cosmobiology Institute.
Peter G. Neumann's accomplishments in computer science and research are extraordinary. Like many creative geniuses in areas of technology and data science, he is gifted in many ways, including being a musician and an investigator in areas outside traditional academia.
Peter's meteoric rise in the world of technology began with a PhD in Mathematics from Harvard University in 1961, and he was a Fulbright scholar in Germany where he received German Dr rerum naturarum in 1960. It was during his years at Harvard University that he had a two-hour meeting with Albert Einstein, and that meeting profoundly influenced him.
He was fortunate to participate in exciting work at the Computer Science Lab at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey (1960-70). In case you are not a techno-geek, Bell Labs is where many major discoveries, including Nobel prize winning discoveries have been made by some of the world's greatest scientists.
Peter then transferred to SRI International Computer Science Laboratory headquarters in Menlo Park, California. SRI International is situated in the heart of Silicon Valley next to Stanford University. This highly dynamic and progressive environment is where Peter's enormous number of contributions have been generated. He is a leading expert in all areas of computer and information security systems and has been involved in numerous critically important projects that are used throughout the computer and information systems industry, the military, public voting, etc. Peter has served on many advisory boards and committees that have a strong influence and impact on developments in technology and/or governmental policies. We would list some of them here but it would result in this website page being very long.

David Cochrane received a BA Degree from SUNY Binghamton in 1972 and a MA Degree in Research and Evaluation Methodology from the University of Florida in 2018. In September, 1972 David started a lifelong non-stop passionate pursuit of the work of Theodor Landscheidt and others on a possible connection between the cosmos and human behavior.
