The production of biological light (ultra-weak photon emission or biophotons) within many types
of cells and tissues is characteristic of an alive organism.
You will begin a journey of discovery about biophotons in relationship
to biological matter
and about how such biophotons
can be detected utilizing specialized very photon-sensitive
technologies.
In this book, Roeland Van Wijk provides a unified synthesis that facilitates easy entry into an exciting
sub-field of biology. Light in Shaping Life encompasses the history of biophoton research,
insight into how biophotons are generated, and into their involvement with life. Also included, is
an overview of the potential benefits of such research to a better understanding
of health and medicine.

About the Author
Roeland van Wijk, Ph.D., graduated in biophysical chemistry and molecular biology, and received his Ph.D. at the Utrecht University (Utrecht, The Netherlands). He lectured molecular cell biology at Utrecht University and was visiting scientist at the National Jewish Hospital and Research Centre and the Eleanor Roosevelt Institute For Cancer Research (Denver, USA), and at the Friedrich Miescher Institute (Basel, Switzerland).
He is Director of the institute on Measurements on Luminescence of Natural products (MeLuNa) and Advisor at Sino-Dutch Centre for Preventive and Personalized Medicine (Centre for Photonics of Living Systems) at Leiden University (The Netherlands).

His major research projects are (a) Molecular basis of stress; (b) Stress, differentiation and tumor growth; (c) Photon emission in relation to tumor development; and (d) Human biophoton research in health and disease.
