Overview

Organised by Professor Peter J Sadler FRS, Professor Akhil R Chakravarty and Dr Nicola J Farrer

Event details

Photoactivation of metal complexes presents relatively unexplored potential for the discovery of new chemistry with applications in biotechnology and medicine. This meeting will bring together experts in theory and computation, photophysics, photochemistry, photobiology, and pharmacology to accelerate progress in this highly interdisciplinary and emerging field, and especially to assess the challenges of introducing metal-based photochemotherapy into the clinic.

Biographies of the organisers and speakers are available below and you can also download the programme. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event and the papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
