The Role of Supercomputers in Finding a Cure for Cancer

For several decades, cancer is and was considered as one of disturbing illness in the world more so a group of scientists who are affiliated with the ATOM believe that supercomputers can reduce the time it takes to develop new cure for cancer.

If the latter is indeed possible, you can just imagine how it could help millions of people who just want to have their lives back when they didn’t have such disease.

In making this project a success researchers need the help of various companies and organizations like the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research as well as the GlaxoSmithKline pharmaceutical company.

The researchers’ aim is to produce new drugs for cancer in no time with the help of supercomputers. If this happens long before the era of technology, this might be a hopeless case but it has changed since you now have preclinical imaging and augmented reality which enhances and fastens drug development. There are a lot of people who believe in this project that is why tons of organizations are supporting this research. Success is just around the corner, you can just imagine how many people it can help if the project is successful.

Research Investments Amounting to $750,000

According to Aedin Culhane, a senior research scientist this endeavor is no longer in the brim of total failure, the chances of getting a successful research is already increasing with the aid of technology.

Moreover, according to Helen Diller the University of San Francisco is also taking an active part in developing the research and lab necessary for the project, this is possible by investing $750,000 per annum. Sure enough they would not invest such amount if they did not believe this is possible and this will succeed.

The role of GSK (GlaxoSmithKline)

The primary contribution of GlaxoSmithKlin is the accessibility of data pertaining to almost 2 million molecules that could be used as a part of the drugs used in curing cancer.In those molecules, 500 of which was not able to pass the development process. A lot of developments were already made in cancer research and undeniably the use of supercomputers might take this research into greater heights and overcome the obstacles in this research like time for instance. Many people are afraid to die, this may sound too literary but this is reality, what if you can prevent cancer from happening, isn’t it a good cause to help people achieve more in life and live longer? If this project succeeds, a number of people will be saved and the quality of life they have can be improved because of this research, this is still in the course of becoming a successful endeavor but if this succeeds you’ll see how it can make a difference.
