Circadian ZircLight at the Lighting for Health and Wellbeing Conference

This past summer, LED Magazine held their first one-day immersive Lighting for Health and Wellbeing Conference. The program was exciting, the speakers were passionate, and the field is burgeoning with opportunity. But if there was one phrase uttered more than any other on July 27, it was "It's complicated."

Martin Moore-Ede, M.D., Ph.D., and CEO of Circadian Light, was first to address the issue of blue spectra. Moore-Ede was a professor at Harvard Medical School and led the team that discovered the SCN back in 1980. But it wasn't until 2001 that researchers discovered it was exposure to what Moore-Ede calls "bio-active blue light" as the key to entrainment of the circadian clock. The prior thinking had been that exposure to white light in general was the key.
