For centuries philosophers have grappled with the question of what makes life, and thanks to the science of quantum mechanics we might just have the answer, writes Q3 panelist Professor Johnjoe McFadden in an op-ed for ABC’s The Drum.

Professor McFadden is a molecular biologist from University of Surrey and will be in attendance at the upcoming third annual Q Symposium in Sydney this February 10-13, 2016. He will be presenting a paper titled ‘Life on the Edge: the new science of quantum biology‘ on the Quantum Mind panel.
