We support the research after many relentless diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s among several other ‘protein misfolding’ related diseases by donating our computing power to the Folding@home project. F@h simulates protein folding and plays an active role in computational drug design in order to cure life-threatening diseases.
We have started our own folding team in December ’13, and have reached over five million points so far. Why not put those computing horsepowers to good use, to do something amazing? Join us in the fight against cancer – and many other diseases – by donating your computing power to Stanford University, to find cures and save lives!
