Josh Centers:

If you’re looking for a new distributed computing project to join (calling Bob Lauterbach), the 20-year-old Folding@home project is still going strong. Folding@home is dedicated to “understanding protein folding, the diseases that result from protein misfolding and aggregation, and novel computational ways to develop new drugs in general.”

In addition to cancer, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and Parkinson’s, Folding@home is tackling a disease that has been dominating the headlines: COVID-19. Your contributions could help researchers find a treatment.


Update (2020-03-27): Dominik Wagner:

Fun Fact: I’m actually running windows on an iMac to be able to contribute to the #COVID19 @foldingathome projects, as they are all GPU only right now and no GPU support on macOS currently.
