"Founded by a group of distinguished scientists and physicians, the World Institute for Scientific Exploration held a reorganization meeting on June 8, 2011, in Boulder, Colorado, and was named the Institute for Scientific Exploration at that time, but the name was later changed to World Institute for Scientific Exploration, to reflect the global mission and objectives of the Institute. This meeting was the culmination of discussions that had taken place among the founders of the Institute and other interested physicians and scientists over the preceding few years, who recognized the need for a scientific institution dedicated to doing innovative research on scientific anomalies, alternative medicine, and unexplained phenomena of all kinds."
