Gravity and quantum theory have been confirmed individually, but phenomena described by the two usually take place at very different physical regimes. Nevertheless, gravity can affect quantum systems and some aspects of the interplay can be probed in experiments. In the first part of the talk I will briefly show how signatures of speculative models of quantum gravity can be probed in table-top quantum systems. In the second part I will discuss how time dilation affects the dynamics of composite quantum systems, resulting in novel effects that can be accessed in near future experiments.
