About the Centre for Quantum Life Science

Quantum sensing and computing solutions offer a powerful potential to “more information at better detail, in near real-time” and are thus at the heart of the novel and next-generation bioimaging technologies as well as next-generation precision health applications. 

The primary aim of the QLS Centre is to form a base for national and Nordic collaboration in the QLS field and thereby promote and accelerate the development and utilization of QLS applications.

The long-term goal of the QLS Centre is to contribute to Sweden´s and the Nordic’s transition into a world-leading actor in precision health, leveraging new quantum and AI technologies. Our strategy is to create the QLS Centre where we combine excellent resources and competencies from quantum, AI and the life sciences to create QLS applications. 

The host organisation is Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience.

The QLS Centre is a collaboration between KI and representatives from KUH, SU, KTH, LU, Chalmers, GU & Sahlgrenska University Hospital.
