TJ Educational Experiences - IBET Team Works on Phototherapy Project

November 16, 2021

Recently, the Fisher, Iyengar, Klein, Hamblin IBET team joined Engineering Tomorrow’s founder, Dr. William Woodburn, and Program Coordinator Constance Chiplock for a week-long phototherapy project designed to measure the potential benefits of blue light therapy on health.

Students completed lab investigations under the guidance of the Engineering Tomorrow team representatives at Purdue, Notre Dame, and Johns Hopkins and then met with NASA’s Milton Davis, Spacecraft Manager for On-orbit Servicing Assembly and Manufacturing Mission 1 (OSAM-1), to discuss potential applications of the project and the patenting process.

Students were given bags of equipment by the Engineering Tomorrow team and traced their body outlines in order to take measurements. Below is a photo gallery of this unique experiment.
