Abstract : Man has recognised an association of light with life and medicine for over 3000 years. Today the major challenges to this topic include the elucidation of photochemical reactions involved in photobiology at the molecular level. This includes the use of variety of modern probing techniques that directly measures the reactivity of excited states and free radicals involved in biological reactions. This text-book is based on such an approach and has arisen from some of the lectures delivered at the NATO ASI held at Hotel Capo Caccia near the Centre for Advanced Research in Photobiology (CARP) in Cardegia, Italy. The ASI took place from 30 Sep-13 Oct 93 and involved a total membership of 90. Photobiology in Medicine is a wide-ranging subject that obviously cannot be totally covered comprehensively in one book alone. Rather, chose topics of current interest in photomedicine were focused upon and these are linked the major underlying themes and techniques in photophysics and photochemistry.
