Paper Abstract

While many have contributed to the field of ‘photodynamic therapy’, Thomas J. Dougherty played the central role. Without his efforts, it seems unlikely that PDT would have advanced much beyond being a medical curiosity. This summary discusses both his many contributions to the field and the wide range of discoveries made possible by his pioneering studies that brought PDT to the attention of the funding agencies.
