He has several other book projects in progress at various stages of completion. In 2011 Dr Hamblin was honored by election as a Fellow of SPIE. Pinar Avci, MD is a Research Fellow in Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School Department of Dermatology, Boston USA. She received her MD degree in General Medicine from Semmelweis University, and is currently pursuing her PhD in Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Dermato-oncology, Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary. She is currently conducting research in the area of Photodynamic therapy (PDT) - a localized approach for treatment of cancer and infections and its effects in developing anti-tumor immunity. Gaurav Gupta did both his MBBS and MD at J.N. Medical College, Aligarh, India, and subsequently received PhD training at the Creighton University, Omaha, NE, USA and postdoctoral fellowship training at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
