Abstract: The study of the interaction between light and biological matter, called biophotonics, contributes to our understanding of biological systems - from subcellular compartments up to the human organ system. Herein, light is employed as a tool to understand delivery of novel photopharmaceutical and antimicrobial systems to bacteria, cells, and tissue. The first part of this thesis (papers I and II) focuses on production of toxic species via photoactivation of a compound, both in cells and tissue, u... more
