In the first of three guest-curated events on Quantum Biology, Jim Al-Khalili invites Philip Ball to introduce how the mysteries of quantum theory might manifest themselves at the biological level. He will explain how the baffling yet powerful theory of the subatomic world might play an important role in biological processes.

Philip Ball is a science writer, writing regularly for Nature and having contributed to publications ranging from New Scientist to the New York Times.

He is the author of many popular books on science, including works on the nature of water, pattern formation in the natural world, colour in art, and the cognition of music.

He has also broadcast on many occasions on radio and TV.
