Photobiomodulation Conference Oct 1-3, 2021

Post by Plumster »

This scientific conference will be addressing research on photobiomodulation (PBM, red light therapy). I will note right away that registration is not at all free and costs $400. If you are interested but with no intent to pay this amount, I recommend looking up the scientists and the research they are doing. Most of the work on PBM and the brain takes place on the first day of the conference.
