Quantum Physics meets Medicine: Translational Quantum Science (TQuant)

Creating Quantum Devices of the Future

Translational Quantum Science (TQuant) is a large-scale interdisciplinary, cross-institutional project that aims to translate advances in fundamental quantum science into biomedical and clinical applications. In particular, the visionary goal of TQuant is to revolutionise medical imaging and diagnostics by pioneering the technology of quantum sensing using novel robust quantum systems.

TQuant brings together world leading experts from physics, material science, engineering, life sciences and medicine under one research programme. Researchers are active in four research organisations, the Universities of Stuttgart and Ulm, the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart and the Ulm University medical centre.

TQuant uses the Center for Integrated Quantum Science and Technology (IQST) as a platform to foster future ground breaking industrial applications by sustaining active collaborations with world-renowned companies, such as BOSCH, Bruker and Carl Zeiss AG. In addition, TQuant will build on the IQST‘s international university exchange and cooperation with Hebrew University, Tokyo University and the University of British Columbia. The initial phase of the project is generously sponsored by the Carl Zeiss foundation.
