Posted by in categories: biological, quantum physics

As Geordie Rose was to QC; Jim Al-Khalili is to Quantum Biology. QC and QB will together make a new advance quantum tech world complete as both are needed to advance both the foundation(infrastructure) and the products and services we love and rely on.

What is quantum biology? Philip Ball explains how strange quantum effects take place in the messy world of biology, and how these are behind familiar biological phenomena such as smell, enzymes and bird’s migration.

In this guest curated event on quantum biology, Jim Al-Khalili invited Philip Ball to introduce how the mysteries of quantum theory might manifest themselves at the biological level. Here he explains how the baffling yet powerful theory of the baffling yet powerful theory of the subatomic world might play an important role in biological processes.

Jim Al-Khalili is Professor of Theoretical Physics and Professor of Public Engagement in Science at University of Surrey. He is author of several popular science books and appears regularly on radio and television. In 2007, he was awarded the Royal Society Michael Faraday Prize for Science Communication.

This event took place at the Royal Institution on 28 January 2015.
