Quantum biology is an emerging field that is interdisciplinary between quantum theory and biology; most of the current research is theoretical and subject to questions that require further experimentation. Some examples of quantum effects are superposition states, entanglement, tunneling, matter waves, quantum coherence, highly efficient excitation energy transfer, etc., which have been investigated in different systems, such as photosynthesis, DNA, olfaction, vision, ion channels, enzymes, magnetoreception, etc. However, the detection of such quantum effects is not an easy task, requiring very sensitive experimental setups with high precision to clearly show the existence of such quantum effects.

In our quantum biology group, we are interested to investigate quantum effects in biology both theoretically and experimentally.
