Theoretical Aspects of Gravitational Quantum Optics (Vienna Theory Lunch Seminar)
Speaker:Thomas Mieling (University of Vienna)
Abstract:This talk is part of the "Vienna Theory Lunch Seminar", a weekly seminar aimed at both graduate and advanced undergraduate students, jointly organized by the University of Vienna and TU Wien. The focus of the seminar is on recent theoretical research done by Master students, PhDs and PostDocs. Free lunch (pizza) will be provided at the seminar.

“Quantum Biology”: how nature harnesses quantum processes to function optimally, and how might we control such quantum processes to therapeutic and tech advantage
Speaker:Clarice Aiello (University of California, Los Angeles)
Abstract:Imagine driving cell activities to treat injuries and disease simply by using tailored magnetic fields. Many relevant physiological processes, such as: the regulation of oxidative stress, proliferation, and respiration rates in cells; wound healing; ion channel functioning; and DNA repair were all demonstrated to be controlled by weak magnetic fields (with a strength on the order of that produced by your cell phone). Such macroscopic physiological responses to magnetic fields are consistent with being driven by chemical reactions that depend on the electron quantum property of spin. In the long-term, the electromagnetic fine-tuning of endogenous “quantum knobs” existing in nature could enable the development of drugs and therapeutic devices that could heal the human body — in a way that is non-invasive, remotely actuated, and easily accessible by anyone with a mobile phone. However, wher
