  • We are a newly established group at UCLA led by Prof. Clarice D. Aiello. Our mission is to establish the extent to which quantum mechanics accounts for biologically relevant phenomena, and can be manipulated to technological and therapeutic advantage. 

    Experiments suggest that nontrivial quantum mechanical effects involving spin might underlie biologically relevant phenomena as varied as magnetic field detection for animal navigation, metabolic regulation in cells and optimal... Read More
