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.





In 2012, there was a horrendous accident with balloons filled with hydrogen at a rally which exploded when a cigarette was lit and in turn overwhelmed the emergency rooms in a city in Armenia. Now Rox Anderson, MD and Lilit Garibyan, MD bring their knowledge and expertise of laser technology to Armenia to help treat the children with burn scars and to train medical personnel on how to correctly use the lasers to treat patients now and in the future.

Please watch this incredibly moving video on their mission to help the children of Armenia.


One of five Thematic Research Centers at the Massachusetts General Hospital, a teaching laboratory for the Harvard Medical School and an educational and training affiliate of the Health Sciences and Technology program at MIT.
