Institute for Quantum Life Science


It is not only Schrödinger’s cat that sits at the interface between the quantum world and life.
When proteins and DNA function, or when radiation hits the body, light and electrons behave as quantum entities. Together with quantum theory, we develop the latest technologies of the measurement to investigate the fundamental mechanisms of life as a hierarchical structure consisting of molecules, cells, tissues and organisms.
