The Quantum Biology and Computational Physics research group was established at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) in October 2013 and is headed by Ilia Solov'yov.

Our research interests cover a broad range of questions on theory of biomolecules and smart inorganic materials. Of particular interest are those biological processes that trigger energy conversion into forms that are usable for chemical transformations and are quantum mechanical in nature. Such processes involve chemical reactions, light absorption, formation of excited electronic states, transfer of excitation energy, and transfer of electrons and protons in chemical processes. Equally challenging are problems in nanophysics which focus on potential applications in nano- technology, material science and medicine.
