What is going on inside you? Have you heard of Quantum Biology? We'll take you into this special science and give an insight at the tiniest level of life on earth. Meanwhile we'll discuss the ever present impact of Cancer in all its forms and how people live with and even find the funny side of this disease.

Quantum Biology: Warm, Wet, and Noisy

Edeline D'Souza (PHD Student)
Sapphire Lally (PHD Student)
This talk is all about the development of quantum biology over the last century, with biologists making discoveries and physicists proposing theories in fairly disparate fashion. Several key milestones include the Lowdin mechanism for proton tunneling in DNA, the Wiltschko study on European robins, and the Engles and Fleming model of the photosynthesis process. We will also give a short overview of each of our projects, looking at tunneling in DNA bonds and avian magnetoreception respectively.

The humour in the tumour: Cancer, the science and treatment

Dr Ian Bailey (Teaching Fellow)
Prof Melaine Coward (Head of School of Health Sciences)

In this talk, we want to explore living well with and beyond a cancer diagnosis. We will consider the treatments and how humour may be an effective coping strategy for many with a cancer diagnosis. It will also enable an opportunity to consider how a positive attitude may impact on survival.
