Quantum effects in biology

Many cellular processes occur at the intersection between classical and quantum physics. Whether organisms have evolved to exploit quantum coherence, superposition and tunnelling is a central question for understanding life, and may prove key to the design of better catalysts and energy harvesting systems.

Join us to answer this question using single-molecule quantum microscopes and hybrid quantum-classical molecular simulations.
