About JV Kohl

James Vaughn KohlJames Vaughn Kohl

James V. Kohl is the medical laboratory scientist who was the first scientist to accurately link the quantized energy-dependent creation of microRNAs, also known as pre-messenger RNA, to pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained viral latency via what organisms eat. He began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of the creation of food energy-dependent human pheromones.

Links from the enzyme-dependent metabolism of nutrients to species-specific pheromones also link metabolic networks to microRNA-mediated genetic networks in the context of epigenetic pharmacology and cell type differentiation in all cells of all individuals of all species. Kohl has detailed the bio-physically constrained chemistry of protein folding and conserved molecular mechanisms a series of published works and conference presentations during the past 26 years.

Kohl integrated scientific evidence that pinpoints the ecologically adapted neurophysiological mechanism that links olfactory/pheromonal input to genes in hormone-secreting cells of tissue in a specific area of the brain that is primarily involved in the sensory integration of olfactory and visual input, and in the development of human sexual preferences. His award-winning 2007 article/book chapter on multisensory integration: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences followed an award winning 2001 publication:  Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology, which was coauthored by distinguished researchers from Vienna. Rarely do researchers win awards in multiple disciplines, but Kohl’s 2001 award was for neuroscience, and his 2007 “Reiss Theory” award was for social science. His most recent published work is Nutrient-dependent Pheromone-Controlled Ecological Adaptations: From Angstroms to Ecosystems


Kohl worked as a medical laboratory scientist from 1974 until his forced retirement in 2013.  He has devoted more than 35 years to researching the relationship between the sense of smell and the morphological and behavioral development in species from microbes to humans. Unlike many researchers who work with non-human subjects, medical laboratory scientists use the latest technology from many scientific disciplines to perform a variety of specialized diagnostic medical testing on people.
