06 Oct 2015 – Finding new avenues to attack Ebola
Efforts to simulate matches between candidate compounds and one key Ebola virus protein are largely complete. Simulations of matches against another, newly discovered target protein are beginning now. Even as simulation work continues, the team is beginning to analyze these results and home in on compounds that could form the basis for effective new drugs against Ebola and other related diseases. Thanks to your help, and a new grant, the work is proceeding well.

30 Sep 2015 – Pioneering new techniques in the fight against HIV
The team behind FightAIDS@Home is launching Phase 2 of the project, putting to use a more accurate simulation tool to help them determine which of the Phase 1 results merit further investigation. Phase 2 will also be applying this analysis technique at an unprecedented scale, which if proven successful, can benefit medical research not only for HIV but many other diseases as well.

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.
