Quantum biology meetings


In addition to the Foundation’s own conferences and meetings, there are a number of other regular, online meetings and larger in-person conferences and events that serve as an invaluable resource for the QB community. Details are below.

If you know of additional meetings please contact us and we will add them to the listing below.


Online QB meetings

The Big Quantum meetings

These meetings are a joint effort by UCLA’s QuBiT Lab and the Leverhulme Quantum Biology Doctoral Training Centre. They take place every Thursday, are well attended and speakers address a range of topics relevant to all aspects of quantum biology. Trainees are also encouraged to give short introductory talks before the main speaker.
