Research in pharmaceuticals heavily relies on the analytical tools that fluorescence spectroscopy can offer. Current research focuses on the development of drugs realising minimum toxicity to maintain the safety of vital organs.

Stable anti-inflammatory drugs are also developed, for example by protecting them against fluorescence quenching. Considerable effort is employed on the development of fluorescent complexes as bio-labels for drug delivery for their use in the photodynamic therapy of cancerous tumours.
