    Abstract

    Cancer is amongst the most common causes of death in the western world. Chemotherapy is amongst the most used therapies for treatment, however its components heavily damage healthy tissues. By the development of light-controlled chemotherapeutic agents, we work on a technology to overcome this limitation.
