Flyover HealthTech: Utilizing data, a quantum computer for Cleveland Clinic, & R&D
- Orthopedic companies in flyover country, like Stryker and Zimmer Biomet, are exploring how utilizing data can improve procedures and patient outcomes. The data is collected before and after operations, as well as collected by robots during surgery.
- A study from Washington University in St. Louis suggests that giving chemotherapy treatments in the morning rather than the evening could add to survival time for patients with an aggressive type of brain cancer.
- The Cleveland Clinic will be the first U.S. site for IBM’s “Quantum Computer.” Quantum computing will be the main component of the Global Center for Pathogen Research & Human Health.
- Biologists at the University of Louisville have found a way to make cell cultures respond more closely to normal cells, allowing drugs to be screened for toxicity earlier in the research timeline.
