Jim Al-Khalili | Is Life Quantum Mechanical? The emerging science of quantum biology

13 February, 2018

Can quantum phenomena explain the origin of life? Can living life as we know it hinge upon rules beyond our grasp? Jim Al-Khalili, Professor of Theoretical Physics in the University of Surrey and a BBC broadcaster introduced the exciting new field of Quantum Biology. How can fragile quantum mechanical phenomena previously thought to be confined to highly rarefied laboratory environments at temperatures close to absolute zero, manage to survive in the wet, warm biological world?

Jim Al-Khalili´s talk in the Athens Science Festival took place with the support of Travlos Publishing
