This is an extraordinary lecture. It is the story of how LLLT / Photobiomodulation was discovered, and because of the context in which it occurred you might also find it very moving, so get some tissues. It is an hour and 10 minutes long so get comfortable, maybe get some popcorn and a drink too. I will paste the email that Andrew Mester wrote into the comments section below.
Here is the email from Andrew Mester :
I had the privilege to give a keynote presentation at the most recent NAALT (North American Association of PhotobiomoduLation Therapy) meeting in February 5, 2017 in Coronado Island, San Diego. The title of paper was: “Invention of Laser Biostimulation”. My lecture is in Youtube now.
Photo-medicine is an exciting new field in both scientific and clinical research all over the world and most recently in the USA. I learned in this interesting meeting that low intensity laser and LED light may stimulate, heal and regenerate neural tissue. … Continue reading

Following on from the excellent ASP meeting last week I am excited to announce another one of my favourite LLLT / Photobiomodulation / “Cold Laser” meetings – The Light-Activated Tissue Regeneration & Therapy III conference. This meeting is initiated by Ron Waynant from the Electro-Optics Branch of the FDA. These are week long meetings, usually held in a remote / isolated location, where speakers and delegates dress casually, have longer presentations than usual followed by long Q&A sessions and long breaks so lots of interaction is accomplished. If you want to talk, listen, eat, sleep LLLT / photobiomodulation for 5 days then this is for you.
11-15 July 2010, Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center, Burlington Vermont
