Research Fellow

Cleber Ferraresi, PhD
Research Fellow
My research interest is the use of low-level lasers and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to increase muscle performance in human, especially in high performance athletes. Currently, my research is focused on mechanisms of action of the light (lasers and LEDs) on the muscle cells and muscle tissue in animal models.
Yingying Huang, MD
My research interest is focused on low level light therapy as a treatment for traumatic brain injury. I am also interested in photodynamic therapy for cancer with new synthetic stable bacteriochlorins.
Masayoshi Kawakubo, MD
Visting Scientist
My research focuses on establish new way to treat lung, colon and breast cancer using photodynamic therapy in mouse model.

Fatma Vatansever, MD, PhD
Research Scientist
She is a neurologist by medical training with a Master's and PhD degrees, and post-doctoral training in the areas of polymer science/nanomaterials & nanotechnology. Dr. Vatansever is an investigator at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. Her research interests are focused on brain functioning, traumatic brain injury and ensuing neurologic maladies, and the near-IR light effects in modulating these functions. She is using neurophotonics, optogenetics, and longitudinal brain imaging techniques in her ex-vivo and in-vivo studies.
