Cleveland Clinic launches quantum innovation program

Cleveland Clinic has introduced the Quantum Innovation Catalyzer Program, an initiative designed to foster competition among startup companies interested in investigating quantum computing's potential applications in healthcare and life sciences.

Cleveland Clinic will choose up to four life sciences and healthcare technology companies in their early and growth stages via an application process, according to a Nov. 3 news release from the health system. 

Selected startups will undergo a 24-week immersive program, which includes:

  • Utilization of the IBM Quantum System One computer to support their research endeavors.

  • Allocation of workspace at Cleveland Clinic's main campus for hands-on experiences and immersion.

  • Opportunities for in-depth discussions on research concepts and projects with Cleveland Clinic clinicians and investigators.

  • Inclusion in the Quantum Working Group on Healthcare and Life Sciences, a collaborative initiative established by IBM Quantum and Cleveland Clinic.

  • Access to educational resources, such as a technical seminar series, healthcare programs and quantum education.

  • Program culmination with a graduation and demo day, during which cohort companies present their achievements to a select audience of investors, clinical experts, corporate partners and ecosystem collaborators.

The application process for the Cleveland Clinic Quantum Innovation Catalyzer Program is accepting submissions. The deadline is Jan. 15, and the selected teams will be announced by March 15, the release said.
