Cancer Computer is very pleased to announce, at long last, our very first collaboration with Carleton University (Official) on COVID-19 disease pathogenesis, at Dr. James Green's Biomedical Informatics Co-Laboratory #CUBIC

Thanks to Quadbridge for the server donation and the Queen's University Centre for Advanced Computing, we are able to stand up this newly refurbished 440-core cluster.

Thanks also to two of our volunteers Ian Stakenvicius and Sanjay Belkhode, for taking a day to do the installation; and our friends at CAC for making it happen.

We could have had this cluster ready several months ago, but we needed to save up about $3,400 for rails, 10GbE cards, SSDs, and money for a rental van to be able to install it. Please consider having your company support us with donations, we make a little bit go a long way!

Cancer Computer is happy to extend our long collaboration with Indiana University Bloomington with the help of Rob Quick, and team, who deployed our new high-memory cluster, as we were unable to do so ourselves because of COVID-19 restrictions. Thanks guys, we're grateful for all your assistance. This cluster will provide IU researchers work on bioinformatics workloads. Thank you IU for hosting this cluster and supporting our mission in #ComputingForTheCure #Cancer #Research #CancerResearch #indianauniversity

Cancer Computer is 4 years old today!

Our founder and CTO, Roy Chartier, founded this charity on an idea. Now, 4 years later, we're a dynamic team #ComputingForTheCure on 12 cancer research projects across North America!

Our outgoing Executive Director, Tyler Nelson, has passed the torch on to our incoming Executive Director, Joanne Wong! Under Tyler's stewardship we've grown exponentially, and are looking forward to another great year of #ComputingForTheCure!

At Cancer Computer, we are very excited to announce a generous donation of $775,000 of servers and networking hardware from Ericsson Canada Inc

We're extremely grateful and have already started negotiations with researchers at major Canadian and U.S. cancer centers, and industry, to deploy several research clusters, early in Q1, 2019. Thanks to Invest Ottawa for allowing us to announce at their gorgeous Cours Bayview Yards facility.

Thanks also to Quadbridge Inc. allowing us to present our story at their June 2018 Qbits Conference in Montreal and Peter Stefanov for making it all happen! Special thanks to Quantropi and DNSnetworks for attending the event, and Invest Ottawa and Ericsson Canada staff who made things happen behind the scenes for this event.

Cancer Research Faces a Problem

All around the world cancer researchers, scientists and academic organizations are changing the face of cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Unfortunately, possible advances are put on hold while researchers wait months or even years for a slice of time on a supercomputer.

These long wait times for computing power delay possible breakthroughs to finding a cure that could save the life of a friend or loved one.

Scientists need timely access to the right technology – that’s where we come in.
