Photodynamic Sciences and Medicine: An Enlightening Convergence
Brian Wilson, PhD

The use of molecules that are activated by light offers many potential applications in clinical medicine, both therapeutic and diagnostic, and represents a rich convergence between the physical and life sciences. This will be illustrated by specific examples, including clinical applications in brain, prostate and bone, and emerging paradigms based on exploiting novel photophysics (2-photon activation), photochemistry (molecular beacons), photobiology (metronomic dosing) and nanotechnologies. A common thread is the significant challenge that comes from having to make diverse technologies work together in an optimal and synchronized way in order to move them along the development pathway to clinical translation via commercialization.
