The Trends and Future of Photobiology : Medical Aspects
This meeting has witnessed the emergence of a new collabora tion of science and medicine—a society of scholars, studying the effect of light on biologic systems at all levels of organization from bacteria to humans. Photobiology has joined with photomedicine, both using the scientific method to plumb new basic truths and to apply them to the problems of human disease.
