Life Sciences and Healthcare Quantum Innovation Hub

The potential of quantum science to revolutionize healthcare and life sciences is undeniable. 

But translating this potential into tangible benefits requires a collaborative effort – a dedicated space where brilliant minds from diverse backgrounds can come together to unlock the power of quantum technologies.

Under the Economic Development Authority’s Economic Adjustment Assistance program, a ‘Life Sciences & Healthcare Innovation Hub’ was submitted and awarded for a planning and pilot grant to accelerate the next generation of quantum-enabled life sciences and healthcare industries in “DNA Alley” and Greater Washington via a use-inspired & industry cohort-driven innovation hub. 

Through extensive research, insightful interviews with key players, and interactive workshops, we embarked on a journey to explore the landscape of quantum innovation in life sciences. This research-driven approach yielded invaluable insights. We heard the challenges and opportunities from leading researchers, industry experts, and policymakers. We brainstormed new ideas, identified concrete applications, and outlined the critical elements for success in collaborative workshops.


One conclusion was clear: a dedicated quantum Innovation Hub for Life Sciences is not just desirable, it's essential.

Here's why:

In partnership with regional industry association and business network partners, PQIC Quantum Innovation Hubs will establish public-private-academia Hubs to develop an informed innovation loop to accelerate quantum value-to-market and help domain experts conduct pre-competitive dialogue, identify collaboration opportunities, and lay the groundwork to prepare for the coming quantum transformation. These cohorts will raise awareness of near-term, high-potential quantum use cases; develop, maintain, and continually reassess high-impact needs and priorities that can be addressed by quantum; and prioritize joint R&D projects. Check out our other Quantum Innovation Hub efforts in the DMV.
