Biologically Focused Lighting - The Truth About Circadian Lighting

When:  Mar 14, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CT)
Associated with  The IES St Louis Section

This seminar explores the science behind the human circadian system, its relation to light, and outlines how to design architectural lighting solutions that reinforce healthy circadian rhythms.

Presented by… Robert Soler, VP Human Biological Research and Technology Prior to his work with Biological Innovation and Optimization Systems (BIOS), his most prominent work was with the Kennedy Space Center, where he helped design and build the first LED light for use on the International Space Station (ISS) and collaborated with scientists to use LED light for photobiological purposes in space, including the circadian lighting system designed to synchronize circadian rhythms of astronauts aboard ISS. He holds a Master of Science degree from the Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and has begun a Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego where he received a fellowship from the National Science Foundation for investigation in circadian lighting paradigms. He currently serves on the light advisory committee for the International WELL Building Standard.
