Light in Shaping Life. Biophotons in Biology and Medicine

The production of biological light (ultra-weak photon emission or biophotons) within many types of cells and tissues is characteristic of a living organism. You will begin a journey of discovery about biophotons in relationshipto biological matter and about how such biophotons can be detected utilizing specialized very photon-sensitivetechnologies.


Pill to Person, an interview with Dr. Herman van Wietmarschen

“A single pill to cure every rheumatoid arthritis patient is a dated idea,” explains Herman van Wietmarschen. “People react differently to drugs because their genetic make-up and their life habits aren’t the same. It’s time to figure out to which subgroup patients belong, to get every patient the best drug as soon as possible.”


Tradition Meets Science, an interview with Dr. Koko Wei

Koko Wei is validating Traditional Chinese medicine diagnoses with metabolomics analyses. “There may be value in the combination of both paths.” She has recently finished her PhD research at the Sino-Dutch Centre for Preventive and Personalized Medicine.
