Rutgers University unveiled a new supercomputer called Caliburn that could dramatically cut the time taken to bring products and services to the market as well as provide a shortcut to help cure cancer.

Professor Manish Parahsar led the effort to build the $10 million, state-funded system back in 2012, that nearly a dozen scientists helped create.

The new supercomputer will help researchers in various fields including engineering, medicine and geography, to solve problems like finding the cure to deadly diseases.

Staff says the super-computer will allow them to receive results in just minutes instead of waiting the usual weeks or even months.

The Caliburn is accessible to Rutgers staff and students as well as researchers at other New Jersey universities and industries.

Rutgers says they hope the new system will help recruit both students and scientists from out of state.
