Introduction

Welcome to the Research section of The Guy Foundation website. The charitable Guy Foundation was set up in 2018 by Professor Geoffrey Guy to facilitate research into how a deeper understanding of quantum mechanics in biology might be able to improve our ability to practice medicine.

Professor Guy, with scientific advisor Professor Jimmy Bell and Director of Science Professor Alistair Nunn, have worked to develop hypotheses and theories to explain the underlying basis of disease, in particular, why a modern lifestyle seems to accelerate the ageing process – and has largely focussed on bioenergetics. This voyage has led them to conclude that embracing quantum biology may be necessary to take medicine to the next level.

The Research section of the website provides an introduction to quantum biology and information on the research projects that the Foundation has funded. We also present a research prospects section that describes theoretical development to date and potential areas for future research.

Our aim is to identify and work with not only leading scientific groups who are already active in the field of quantum biology, but seek out others, perhaps pure quantum physicists, who want to take their skills into the world of biology. We would also like to enable biologists who want to work with physicists. The collaboration could take the form of bench research, but also for example to develop new hypotheses about life based on quantum principles, in silico modelling of these ideas, or developing new technology.

At the moment, many useful scientific publications are either very hard to find, or in many cases, are not open source – and even if they are, are too detailed for many to understand. We therefore endeavour to bring publications and resources together for reference by the quantum biology community. In addition, we are building a Bioquantome Wiki that goes into greater depth on this exciting and challenging area of discovery to support both those working in the field and to help make quantum biology accessible to all.

If you are a scientist and are interested in research, sharing relevant publications or events, hosting workshops , contributing to the Wiki, or getting involved in any other way, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
