Contract Supports Research on Laser Treatment of Wounds
Acculaser Inc. of San Diego will continue investigating the effects of IR radiation sources on tissue regeneration, supported by a $100,000 Phase I Small Business Innovation Research contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The company will compare several IR wavelengths to find suitable operating parameters that are most effective in accelerating regeneration of damaged tissue. Eventually, the laser technology may be used to treat soldiers wounded on the battlefield.
