About that title...

Even had the Oxford comma not been omitted, it still would have come across as sounding as though those three people were discussing quantum biology (whatever that is).

I was intrigued, as I'd never heard of Ms. Faithfull being involved in scientific endeavors outside of pharmacology.

Perhaps "Danish lit star Helle Helle, Marianne Faithfull, and Jim Al-Khalili and Johnjoe McFadden on Quantum Biology" would have been slightly less misleading.
