About

The goals of our center are: to create quantum measurements and imaging systems that exceed classical limits to extract novel information from biology; and to create and train the quantum technology workforce of tomorrow.

NSF QuBBE focuses on workforce development, novel quantum materials, targetting quantum materials within cells, imaging, and biomedical applications.
