Wellman’s multi-disciplinary faculty focuses on investigating the effects of light on human biology and discovering new diagnostic and therapeutic uses of light. The integration of biological, physical, and clinical scientists within a premier academic medical center accounts for the Center's success in translating research into real world medical solutions and in training the next generation of scientists.





Bystander effect is a well known social psychological phenomenon, in which people witness an incident without getting involved, and are affected in some way. For example, they may suffer “post-traumatic stress”. On a biological cellular level, the definition of a bystander effect is similar but more precise.
