Speakers: Prof. Peter Weightman

Physicists have entertained the idea that quantum mechanics plays a non-trivial role in biological processes for over fifty years. This has been dismissed by biologists due to a lack of experimental evidence.
Recently however it has been established that photosynthesis exploits quantum mechanical coherence. This lecture will review the evidence for the role of quantum mechanics in biology including the most controversial area.
