I believe in the Folding@Home project. I did a lot of folding when FAH was available for the PS3, and I recently started running it on my PC. Folding@Home is doing research for many diseases:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)
  • Huntington’s Disease (HD)
  • Cancer and P53
  • Chagas Disease
  • Malaria
  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI)
  • Diabetes
  • Antibiotics
  • Parkinson’s Disease (PD)
  • Viral diseases

List from FAH FAQ

After you download the FAH Client, you can dedicate your computer’s processing power to one or all of the above diseases. I’d like to encourage everyone out there to compute one to three work units per week.

We’ve made a DRUL team that anyone can contribute to. Enter our team number 223709 to contribute your credit to our team. We do not get anything from your contributions to our team. It’s just to show that we’re all fighting diseases together!

Happy Folding! 🙂
