A quantum leap in drug discovery

ProteinQure is a Toronto based biotech firm. We create computational R&D tools to perform drug design in silico. We leverage quantum computing, molecular simulations and reinforcement learning to engineer novel therapeutics.

Our Technology

ibm quantum computer

quantum computing

We use quantum computers in hybrid algorithms to help predict how proteins fold. This speeds up our physical simulations.

Reinforcement learning

We use the same technology which underpins AlphaGo to train a reinforcement learning agent to help design protein drugs.

atomistic simulations

We perform classical molecular simulations on GPU superclusters. Simulating the underlying physics of the interactions.

Protein drugs of tomorrow

Despite their inherent advantages, it is very difficult to design protein based therapeutics. ProteinQure is building scalable technologies to aid in structure based protein design.

protein therapeutics scale


For many diseases we can target a wider range of active binding sites with proteins


Structure based design targets diseases with high specificity


Small peptides are often easier to synthesize and test in labs

Mark Fingerhuth

CEO - Co-Founder

Mark is one of the first applied quantum programmers. His published thesis was on implementing the first quantum machine learning algorithm on superconducting gate-based quantum computers.

Tomas Babej

CTO - Co-Founder

Tomas has a MSc degree in computer science, with focus on machine learning, cybersecurity and quantum computing. Before transitioning to ML, he mastered the art of software engineering at Red Hat.

Lucas Siow

Head of Business Ops - Co-Founder

Lucas has an MBA from Rotman, MA in Economics from Penn and applied math background from UC Berkeley. He's worked as a data scientist for major banks and a management consultant.

Chris Ing

CSO - Co-Founder

Chris has numerous publications on protein dynamics and molecular simulations. He received his PhD from the University of Toronto while working in the Pomes Lab at Sick Kids Hospital.

Created with the help of

ProteinQure has found a very promising near-term use case and long-term vision for quantum computing and it's team has demonstrated extensive knowledge in quantum software development.

Yanbo Xue, Senior Deep Learning Researcher, D-Wave Systems

We expect drug development to be majorly impacted by quantum computing, and ProteinQure is one of the most promising teams we've seen.

Reed McBride, VP Business Operations, Rigetti Computing

Our Address

We are located in downtown Toronto; one of the fastest growing tech hubs in North America. At the heart of the university and life sciences ecosystems, we benefit from great relationships with the surrounding players in AI and biotech.
