Douglas Johnson, ATC, EES, CLS, is a certified athletic trainer with over 20 years of clinical/industrial experience. He attended Wayne State University and The University of Detroit-Mercy where he earned a Summa Cum Laude Bachelors of Science degree in Sports Medicine in 1994. He is the Senior Vice President, Clinical and Scientific Affairs at Multi Radiance Medical and is involved in numerous research studies involving super pulsed laser. Recently he was invited to speak at the Annual 2014 NATA Symposium, EuroSciCon 2015 London, England and American College of Sports Medicine 2015 on Laser Therapy and a member of the NAALT/WALT Scientific Education Committee for the 2014 Program. He studied the effect of super-pulsed laser and light emitting diodes phototherapy on non-specific knee pain and currently researching laser therapy for sports performance.
Dr. Janis Eells received her Ph.D. in Pharmacology in 1981 from the University of Iowa and conducted postdoctoral research in Neurotoxicology at Northwestern University in Chicago. As faculty at the Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, she has been actively involved in biomedical education and biomedical research for more than 20 years. Dr. Eells research efforts are directed at understanding the molecular signaling pathways that regulate the processes of cellular degeneration with the long-term goal of learning how to protect cells and tissues against these degenerative processes. These research efforts are directed at understanding the mechanisms by which low energy photon irradiation by light in the far-red to near-infrared spectral range (630-1000 nm) stimulates mitochondrial metabolism and promotes cell survival, a phenomenon known as photobiomodulation . Photobiomodulation using low energy lasers or light-emitting diode (LED) arrays has been shown to stimulate mitochondrial oxidative metabolism, accelerate wound healing, improve recovery from ischemic injury in the heart and attenuate degeneration in the injured retina and optic nerve. Dr. Eells and her colleagues have demonstrated that photobiomodulaton enhances mitochondrial function, attenuates oxidative damage and promotes functional recovery in animal models of retinal degeneration; in retinal damage induced by mitochondrial toxins or by laser injury; in developmental neurotoxicity; and in animal models of Parkinson's disease.
