    What are the different approaches to solving quantum gravity that are in the framework of quantum field theory?

    As I recall the original attempt to quantize gravity within QFT ran into trouble as it was shown to be non-renormalizable. Beyond that the "Quantum Gravity" wikipedia article has a pretty good survey of the basic directions of research and a bit more on the non-renormalizability issue.
