Superposition without the Superstition: Is Quantum Mechanics Really That Weird?

Prof. Philip Moriarty (School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Nottingham )
Philip Moriarty is a Professor of Physics at the University of Nottingham. His research focuses on prodding, pushing, and poking single atoms and molecules; in this nanoscopic world, quantum physics is all. Moriarty has taught physics for almost twenty years and has always been struck by the number of students in his classes who profess a love of metal music and by the deep connections between heavy metal and quantum mechanics, as discussed in “When The Uncertainty Principle Goes To 11” (Ben Bella, 2018). He blogs at https://muircheartblog.wpcomstaging.com/.

Computers as drug hunters

Dr. Iva Lukac (Charnwood Molecular )
My name is Iva Lukac, and I am a computational chemistry group leader at Charnwood Molecular. I am from Croatia, where I completed my undergrad degrees, and then moved to the UK to do my postgrad, and have been here ever since: from Edinburgh to Liverpool to Dundee and now Nottingham. I work in early stages of small molecule drug discovery where I use computers to help design molecules with greater chances of becoming successful drugs.

Could cows future-proof antibody treatments against coronavirus variants?

Prof. Jonathan Ball (School of Life Sciences, University of Nottingham )
I'm a professor of virology based at the University of Nottingham, interested in the development of antibody-based treatments and vaccines for emerging virus infections such as Ebola, Lassa Fever and pathogenic coronaviruses. I also am actively involved in science communication and have contributed to a variety of broadcast and online outputs, especially the BBC. I also have my face on the back of a Nottingham City Transport bus.
