Quantum Cures Announces Breakthrough Approach for Researchers Seeking Cures for Orphan and Rare Diseases
Date:2/28/2013

Americans receiving a diagnosis of a rare disease during their lifetimes.  The FDA estimated in 2005 that, despite the lack of research into finding causes and cures for them, the vast majority of rare diseases may be serious or life threatening.

Quantum Cures' volunteer-based approach has been successfully used as part of the "SETI@Home" project, a scientific experiment run by the University of California-Berkeley (UC).  More than three million volunteers have allowed their Internet-connected computers to be used in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), a figure Quantum Cures believes is replicable for its efforts.

"There is substantial interest in and reason to pursue development of treatment and cures for a wide range of diseases which have, up until now, not received the attention they deserve," said Lawrence Husick , Quantum Cures co-founder.  "By enlisting the help and computer time from many people, we can begin to deliver the resources needed to find the answers, and improve the quality of life of millions, both today and in the future."  TeraDiscoveries, the company that developed Inverse Design™, the computational technique used in the Quantum Cures effort is contributing its software, developed in partnership with Duke University and Microsoft Corporation, at cost.

Others taking an active role in the initial phase of Quantum Cures as board members and technical advisors include:

  • Ed Addison , co-founder of TeraDiscoveries, Inc. and adjunct faculty member, North Carolina State University;
  • Stephen Sinclair , M.D., a medical researcher, retinal surgeon, and adjunct professor of ophthalmology at Drexel University Medical School; and
  • Joseph Becker , M.D., a diagnostic radiologist and visiting profes
