John DeSalvo is director of the Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association. A former college professor and administrator, his B.S. degree is in Physics and his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees are in Biophysics. He has taught the following subjects on the college level: Human Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, General Biology, Human Gross Anatomy and Neurophysiology. 

For over 30 years, DeSalvo was one of the scientists involved in studying the Shroud of Turin. Currently, he is Executive Vice-President of ASSIST (Association of Scientists and Scholars International for the Shroud of Turin), which is the largest and oldest research association in the world currently studying the Shroud of Turin. He was also a research consultant to the original STURP team (Shroud of Turin Research Project) and was the contributing science editor for the book SINDON – A Layman’s Guide to the Shroud of Turin. His Shroud research involved the image formation process of the man on the Shroud and studies using three-dimensional reconstruction, spectroscopic, and ultraviolet analysis. He has lectured nationwide on the Shroud and in 1980, the International Platform Association designated him as one of the top 30 speakers in the nation. 

His purpose in starting this association was to make available to the public general information and research on the Great Pyramid and to post the work of pyramid researchers that may not have the opportunity to publish their work in the traditional academic journals. He makes frequent radio appearances to discuss the research and activities of the Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association. Last year he was featured in the History Channel special ‘Doomsday Hieroglyphics’ which was part of the Nostradamous Effect series. He will also be featured in two episodes of the History Channels series ‘Ancient Aliens’ in the fall.

He is the author of Decoding the Pyramids (also in French, Spanish, Dutch, Italian, and Czech) and Dead Sea Scrolls (also in French, Dutch, Spanish, and German), both published by Barnes and Nobles. Also, The Seeress of Prevorst, The Lost Art of Enochian Magic, and Decoding the Enochian Secrets all published by Inner Traditions - Bear and Company. His new book, Power Crystals was released by Inner Traditions in April, 2012.
