Sandy Winfield Jere is a Post Doctorate Research Fellow at the Laser Research Centre (LRC), Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Johannesburg, South Africa. He is a Malawian, and was first registered with the University for a Master degree in February 2016. His research work focusses on the effects of Photobiomodulation in diabetic wound healing, specifically on the activation of kinases and signalling pathways involved in wound healing. Since he joined the LRC, Dr Jere has worked on two projects entitled “The effect of Photobiomodulation at 660 nm on the JAK/STAT signalling pathway in diabetic wounded fibroblast cells in vitro” and “Influence of Photobiomodulation at 660 nm on the PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling pathway in wound healing of hypoxic diabetic human skin fibroblasts”.As a Post Doctorate fellow, Dr Jere is working on a project entitled “Impact of Photobiomodulation at 660 nm on the Expression of Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor and Activation of the Canonical Wnt/β-Catenin Pathway in Wounded Diabetic Fibroblasts”.
