David M. Jacobs, Ph.D. is Associate Professor of History at Temple University in Philadelphia, specializing in 20th Century American History and Culture. In 1973, Dr. Jacobs completed his dissertation in field of Intellectual History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, on the controversy over unidentified flying objects in America. This was the second Ph.D. degree ever granted in the U.S. involving a UFO-related theme.
Dr. Jacobs is one of the foremost UFO abduction researchers in the world. He has worked with over 140 abductees, conducting nearly 900 hypnotic regressions. Using his extensive primary research, he developed the first scientific typology of abductions. He has amassed over 38 years of primary research data and analytical hypotheses on the subject of UFOs and alien abduction.
Dr. Jacobs' breakthrough 1992 book, Secret Life: Firsthand Accounts of UFO Abductions is the most complete exposition of the structure and meaning of the abduction phenomenon yet published. His next book, The Threat, published in 1998, presented some very provocative ideas about the alien abduction program and what the motives behind it might be. In 2000, Jacobs edited UFOs and Abductions: Challenging the Borders of Knowledge. This book features papers by ten noted authors writing about the UFO/Abduction phenomenon. It is notable because its target readership is the academic community.
More recently, Dr. Jacobs has been looking into the subject of human-alien hybrids. Since 2003, he has been focusing on what he refer to as the Hybrid Integration Program
