Prof. Arany is trained as a dentist and an oral pathologist. He completed a joint PhD-Residency program at Harvard University as a Harvard Presidential Scholar. He has two certificates in clinical translational research from Harvard Medical School and the National Institute of Health. He pursued postdoctoral fellowships at the Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, and Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences & Wyss Institute, Cambridge. Following his training, he served as an Assistant Clinical Investigator at the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, from 2012 to 2015. In 2015, he joined Oral Biology, School of Dental Medicine, University at Buffalo, New York and is currently an Associate Professor with tenure. Prof. Arany also has several adjunct positions in various institutes, including the National Institute of Aging, N.I.H.; Surgery and Biomedical Engineering, University at Buffalo; School of Nursing, Shepherds University; Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy, Manipal University. He has over 100 scientific publications with several well-cited papers to his credit. He is a recipient of numerous awards, such as the NCI Director’s Young Investigator Award, Wound Healing Society’s Young Investigator Award, Eugene Seidner scholar, and Horrace Furomoto Young Investigator award. He has been invited to speak in various national and international forums, reviews for over 50 scientific journals, serves on 9 journal editorial boards and is an Associate Editor in 4 of them, and reviews grants for national and international funding agencies.
Prof. Arany has held several leadership positions and continued to serve in various positions in the Wound Healing Society (W.H.S.), American Association for Dental Research (A.A.D.R), Academy of Laser Dentistry (A.L.D.), American Society of Lasers in Medicine (A.S.L.M.S), American Dental Education Association (A.D.E.A). He is the immediate past president of the World Association for Photobiomodulation Therapy (W.A.L.T) and North American Association for Photobiomodulation Therapy (N.A.A.L.T), Co-Chair of the International Society of Optics and Photonics (S.P.I.E) conference on Mechanisms of Photobiomodulation therapy and technical group member, Optical Society of America (O.S.A) Technical group on Photobiomodulation and Co-Director, Center for Excellence in Photobiomodulation in Nursing, West Virginia. Besides his academic interests in clinical translational research, Dr. Arany has co-founded three biotechnology companies to translate his lab research into real-world, practical solutions to improve clinical care. He actively consults for several companies, academic and regulatory institutions. The overall scientific focus of the Arany lab is to identify key biological regulatory components that can be used in clinical studies to control biological outcomes. His research is predominantly focused on the molecular mechanisms and clinical translation of low-dose light treatments, termed Photobiomodulation Therapy, to alleviate pain or inflammation and promote tissue healing and regeneration. Work from his group has unravelled several molecular pathways that are enabling the safe and effective clinical translation of this innovative treatment. His other areas of interest include smart (sense and respond, controlled release) biomaterial systems, the dichotomy of wounds and tumors, and TGF-β signaling.
