    Abstract

    We summarise how developments in technology have brought fluorescence lifetime spectroscopy from being the preserve of the specialist to becoming a major tool for research across many science and engineering disciplines. We highlight the advantages which fluorescence lifetime measurements can bring, not only to underpin research, but also through application in helping to solve real-world problems. We illustrate this with recent examples in cancer and Alzheimer’s research, which are aimed at improving disease understanding, diagnosis and therapeutics.
