Dear friends and colleagues, Understanding Science was happy to invite you to its 12th seminar for the general public on April 16th in Beijing, entitled “The Science behind Photomedicine”. This event consisted on a presentation (popularization talk) by Professor David Phillips, President of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) and Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at Imperial College London. The use of light on the treatments of skin conditions was introduced. The lecture also discussed surgery using infrared and ultraviolet lasers, and the use of lasers plus chemical sensitizers to selectively destroy tumors in photodynamic therapy. Thanks for your participation.
