Recently, it was shown that the quantum effects of the matter, could be used to determine the conformal degree of freedom of the space-time metric. So both gravity and quantum are geometrical features. Gravity determines the causal structure of the space-time, while quantum determines the scale of the space-time. In this letter, it is shown that it is possible to use the scalar-tensor framework to build a unified theory in which both quantum and gravitational effects are present.
