Three medical students from Thomas Jefferson University – Lorenzo Albala, Graham Hale, and Tim Bober – founded Circalux, Inc. in June 2016 with the goal of improving sleep hygiene for hospital patients. We have since created a proprietary portable LED-based lighting system that employs circadian-friendly technology for sleep-deprived populations to get the rest that they need to heal and grow. Our intervention provides a cost-effective, biologically-informed, proximity-sensing tool for caregivers to perform overnight tasks without unhinging circadian physiology.
Our mission and goal is to bring circadian lighting to the market, through education and innovation.
Lorenzo Albala (Co-founder/CEO) is a medical student at Thomas Jefferson University (Philadelphia, PA) with a Masters in biomedical engineering with experience working as a prototype engineer at a small start-up device company and working with CAD software to 3D-print a human torso surgical training tool.
Dave Hanrahan (CFO & CBDO) works for Susquehanna Growth Equity, LLC - a software investment firm in Philadelphia, PA. He is simultaneously completing the final year of a triple-major undergraduate program with focuses in finance, accounting, and legal studies at the Drexel University, LeBow College of Business.
Tim Bober (Co-founder/Chief Communication Expert) grew up in a small town outside Pittsburgh, PA and graduated from Penn State in 2012 with degrees in English and Vertebrate Physiology . As a former competitive public speaker, he is in charge of gathering background research and crafting the company message of Circalux. He is eager to develop circadian-informed lighting devices for the home and hospital.
