Martin PlenioTitle: Quantum mechanics and noise in biology
Speaker: Martin Plenio, Universität Ulm


Recently, thanks to the convergence of quantum optical technology and biophysics, we have gained the ability to explore theoretical questions concerning the interplay of quantum coherence and noise in complex quantum systems in actual experiments.

This development opens up new avenues of scientific enquiry and is bringing together researchers from physical chemistry, biology and quantum information in a quest for a deeper understanding of the role of quantum physics for the foundation of biology.
