- Biophotonics Researcher Praveen Arany Wins 2016 Furumoto Award
WAUSAU, Wis., March 18, 2016 — The American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery Inc. (ASLMS) has named tissue regeneration researcher Dr. Praveen Arany as the 2016 recipient of its Dr. Horace Furumoto Innovations Young Investigator Award.
During the plenary session at the ASLMS annual conference, Arany will give his award presentation, "Low Dose Clinical Biophotonics: Molecular Mechanisms Are Driving Precision Medicine Therapies." He will explore the popularity in clinical use of biophotonics devices in mainstream medicine from ophthalmology, oncology to various dermatological procedures, with a focus on low-dose biophotonics referred to as photobiomodulation, or PBM, therapy.
Arany is a professor of oral biology at the School of Dental Medicine, University at Buffalo. He was previously an assistant clinical investigator at the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health. His current research is focused on the molecular mechanisms and clinical applications of light therapy to promote wound healing and tissue regeneration.
Since 2008, the Dr. Horace Furumoto Innovations Young Investigator Award has recognized and encouraged the development of future technology innovators and leaders. It is given in memory of the genius, leadership and commitment of Dr. Horace Furumoto, a pioneer in medical laser technology innovation.
