Summary This book is intended for scientists and students involved in basic cell physiology research, for industry professionals, engineers, and managers involved in drug discovery and pre-clinical drug development. It will discuss the practical aspects of luminescence in vivo imaging for monitoring of intracellular processes. While some basic knowledge of biochemistry and biophysics is preferable, the book will include a brief review of fundamental principles that will allow people not familiar with these disciplines to grasp basic concepts
