19 Aug 2015 –  One step closer to identifying lung cancer biomarkers
Although work continues, enough data has already been processed to let the Mapping Cancer Markers team begin identifying high-scoring signatures and associating them with particular lung cancer biomarkers. The ultimate goal is to find signatures that distinguish many types of cancer, giving physicians and researchers another tool to improve detection, treatment and patient outcomes.

12 Jul 2015 – Exceptional early results in the fight against Leishmaniasis
The Drug Search for Leishmaniasis team has completed in vitro lab testing of the 10 top-rated compounds identified during screening, and have found that 4 of those 10 have very interesting properties that could point the way to new therapies. The post-processing of results continues, with the hope of identifying even more promising compounds for future lab and in vivo testing.

06 Jul 2015 – Enhancing the potential for nanotechnology to improve access to clean water for millions
The Computing for Clean Water team has discovered how water can pass through tiny carbon nanotubes much more easily than previously predicted. This groundbreaking understanding of a fundamental physical process holds potential for improving access to clean water for millions through more efficient water filtration and desalination, as well as possible applications in clean energy and medicine. This discovery has been published in Nature Nanotechnology, the world's most prestigious nanotechnology journal.

05 Jun 2015 – Post grid calculations continue to yield progress and inspire new methods against deadly diseases
The GO Fight Against Malaria project team has been making good use of the calculations which were conducted by our volunteers and that concluded in summer 2013. Their findings have sparked progress against not only malaria, but tuberculosis as well. They have one paper published and two more about to be submitted. They continue their work to publish their findings, after which they will resume the analysis on and experimental assessment of the massive amount of data generated by World Community Grid volunteers.
