A possible pathway beyond the gravitational effective field theory

John Donoghue
UMass Amherst


I will briefly review some of the obstacles to extending the quantum field theory treatment of General Relativity to all energies. Then I describe some recent work which has the goal of circumventing those obstacles and possibly heading towards a conventional quantum field theory for the UV completion of General Relativity.
