In October 2022, the CDTI (Center for Industrial Technological Development of Spain) carried out the audit of milestone 2 of the project “QHealth: Quantum Pharmacogenomics applied to aging” and with this event the intense work carried out in QHealth during 2021 has been formally closed.
Both the technical and economic results of the project have been very positive in milestone 2, thanks to which the CDTI audit has been successfully passed.
The results of the work carried out in 2021 not only show full compliance with the work plan established for this milestone, but also contain decisive advances for the fulfilment of the indicators defined for the mission related to the project.
During the year 2021, the main research tasks planned in the project were carried out on:
- the platform for the design of quantum simulation algorithms for pharmacogenomic analysis
- the methodological and technological environment for the development of quantum software required for QHealth
- the platform for the deployment and execution of quantum software that can be integrated with classic health systems for the treatment of aging
- the integration of health indicators with quantum software for the treatment of aging, more specifically the modeling of the variables considered in the clinical analysis
The research activity during 2021 was characterized by a high degree of innovation and invention to achieve the goals of applying quantum computing in a practical way to life sciences, something that has been possible thanks to the scientific and technological collaboration of the multidisciplinary teams of researchers and technologists of the Consortium made up of aQuantum (by AlhambraIT), Gloin and Madrija and of the Knowledge-generating Centers: INUBE, University of Castilla La Mancha (UCLM) and the University of Extremadura (UEx).
The project “QHealth: Quantum Pharmacogenomics applied to aging” has a total budget of € 5,160,477.00 and has received a grant from Misiones 2020 program of the CDTI of € 3,671,281.69, and has been supported by the Spanish Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación and by the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund).
