People

The Leverhulme Quantum Biology Doctoral Training Centre (QB-DTC) is a joint effort of several academics in diverse disciplines all contributing their expertise in the form of supervisory teams for our quantum biology postgraduate researchers; coming from the Advanced Technology Institute, the School of Biosciences and Medicine, the Nuclear Theory group and more to provide full support.
