Have you ever wondered how successful the use of light-activated antimicrobial treatment in dentistry is? Or whether the combined light exposure from different dental equipment in the dental clinic, is too high?

These topics were reviewed in three different lectures by NIOM’s scientists, at the European Society for Photobiology (ESP), in Spain. (Links to the abstracts are below.)

The picture show Ph.D. candidate Krister Grønlien, School of Pharmacy, University of Oslo, who presented collaborative work with NIOM at the conference. His poster “Photostability of an anionic porphyrin in natural deep eutectic solvent (NADES)” was well received.

The congress was held in late August, and is a joint event between ESP and the International Congress on Photobiology. This year’s congress was the 18th. It attracted around 800 researchers and Ph.D. candidates, from about 50 countries.
