The late Roy Rustum PhD, was on the The Pennsylvania State University's faculty for sixty years and one of the leading material scientist’s in the U.S. He was one of the leading materials scientists in the U.S. He contributed thousands of articles to real science ranging from inventing the sol-gel process to glass ceramics to diamond films and nanocomposites to microwave and laser processing of materials. He was the senior-most member in the U.S. National Academy of Engineering specializing in (ceramic) materials. He was elected as a foreign member to the Swedish, Japanese, Indian, and Russian National Academies, and 'knighted' by the Emperor of Japan. Publishing in a journal for which he was editor-in-chief, he wrote about the relevance of the structure of water to homeopathy which he defended from 'Homeophobia' by letter to The Guardian.

On October 25, 2007 a fascinating debate was held at the University of Connecticut Health Centre between six internationally renowned experts (Iris Bell, M.D., Ph.D., Rustum Roy Ph.D., Andre Saine N.D., Donald Marcus M.D., Steven Novella M.D., and Naduv Davidovitch M.D., Ph.D.). They examined the basic science as well as the clinical and historical evidence around this 200 year old system of medicine.
