Record Grant for Scientists to Study Light and Health

The US-based National Institute on Aging is giving $3.8 million to top researcher Dr. Mariana Figueiro, professor and director at the Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York state. The institute wants Figueiro to probe if installing so-called ‘circadian lighting’ for elderly people can improve sleep, perception and memory. It especially wants to see if it helps individuals with mild cognitive impairment, which is a potential early stage of dementia. Figueiro is among the world’s top experts in the area of light and health, with a focus on bridging science to practical applications aimed at improving human quality of life. https://www.lrc.rpi.edu/
