Quantum biology is emerging as a promising synthesis of quantum science and technology with the complexity of biological systems. Quantum coherent effects in photosynthetic light harvesting and the radical-pair mechanism of biological magnetic sensing, tunneling effects in olfaction, coherent electron transport in biochemical reactions, quantum computer simulations of biomolecular systems, biomimetic quantum technology for sustainable energy sources are only few of the directions explored by quantum biology.
After a two-year absence brought about by Covid-19, the 12th QuEBS workshop aims to be a jubilee workshop bringing together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and industry experts, like quantum physicists, biologists, biophysicists and biochemists, physical chemists in order to communicate the latest most exciting findings in quantum biology.
The workshop will take place in the historic town of Heraklion, a vibrant city boasting a modern academic environment comprised of the University of Crete, the nearby Foundation for Research and Technology, and the Hellenic Mediterranean University, along with numerous possibilities for exploring a rich cultural heritage, from the pre-Minoan civilization of 3000 BC, through the Venetian and Ottoman era, to modern times.
The workshop is organized by
the Biomedical Sciences Research Center “Alexander Fleming”, the University of Buckingham and the University of Crete.
