Warm welcome addresses were delivered by Prof. Vahid Sandoghdar, Director at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light and local host of this meeting, and by Prof. Jürgen Schüttler, Dean of the Medical Faculty of FAU. They set the stage for this symposium and put it in context with the local efforts to identify emerging areas for highly interdisci­plinary endeavors between the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, the newly estab­lished Max-Planck-Zentrum für Physik und Medizin, and the Institute of Physiology and Pathophysiology of the University.
