 quantum technologies that enable new
modes of observation in biology, chemistry and medicine and explore the role that
quantum dynamics plays in biological systems at the nanoscale. New insights afforded
by these principles and technologies will be used to drive research in biology, chemistry
and medicine. The interdisciplinary research conducted at the Centre of Quantum BioScience encompasses fundamental and applied research which will foster cooperation  ith technology and pharmaceutical industries.

Who are we?

The Centre of Quantum BioScience brings together internationally leading research teams from the fields of Theoretical Physics, Experimental Quantum Optics, Organic Chemistry and Molecular Virology...
