Cleveland Clinic’s Chief Research Information Officer Thinks Quantum Will Transform Healthcare Research 

“Quantum Offering a Future”

In a first-of-its-kind healthcare collaboration, Cleveland Clinic and IBM announced their collaboration this week, as announced by us. Dedicated to healthcare research, this is the first quantum computer of its kind.

Through high-performance computing, the two organizations hope to fundamentally advance biomedical research through their 10-year partnership. A number of city leaders joined both organizations to recognize the huge advances in technology.

“It opens up so many opportunities for combinations that were too complicated to run to start with,” said Lara Jehi, M.D., Cleveland Clinic’s Chief Research Information Officer, when interviewed for WKYC Channel 3, the main video channel of WKYC and Channel 3 News in Cleveland, Ohio.

A total of 25 clinic projects are in the works, including a drug discovery project. In a lab, it would take years for various molecules to be configured into drugs, but IBM’s computer can slash the time.

“The current pace of scientific discovery is unacceptably slow, while our research needs are growing exponentially,” Jehi continued. “We cannot afford to continue to spend a decade or more going from a research idea in a lab to therapies on the market. Quantum offers a future to transform this pace, particularly in drug discovery and machine learning.”

This is sure to be the first of many projects IBM will start to aid the healthcare sector and improve the chances of better drug discovery for the sector.
