Since 2017, Dr. Greenberg has been working closely with Dr. Richard Lang, a colleague at the University,  to develop a biologically aware, tunable lighting system so that they can look at how changes in circadian stimulus and spectral intensity affect growth and development.

This new tool for research will be running alongside the day to day patient care in the new building.
