Welcome to Sungkyunkwan University's (SKKU)
Institute of Quantum Biophysics (IQB)
IQB aims to facilitate collaborative and interdisciplinary research efforts to establish quantum biology, quantum biophysics, and Quantum Biological ICs (QBICs) for precision medicine. The QBICs might solve the problem of preventive healthcare by developing innovative predictive medical devices and systems. The purpose of creating pioneering healthcare integrated system is to address the technical barriers preventing distributed healthcare solutions in remote and resource-poor settings (In both developed and developing countries.)
We will cultivate critical insights into global healthcare obstacles by establishing an effective environment for both fundamental scientific inquiry and practical implementation of solutions at the interface on biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and medicine. Through educational outreach and innovative technology development, IQB researchers will establish a deep systemic understanding of quantum effects in biology, medical limitations, and successful inventions of novel and highly integrated quantum biotechnology with quantum nanotechnology and quantum information technology in a range of global health settings.
