13 Feb 2017 – The Importance of Protein Social Behavior
Which proteins are most likely to interact with other proteins, and how might these interactions affect disease, and life itself? Results from data computed by World Community Grid are being used to help create a protein sociability index, which could help future advances in biology and medicine.

15 Oct 2015 – The Clean Energy Project team explains: What is high-throughput virtual screening?
The Clean Energy Project team has just published some thoughts about the philosophy, practicalities and potential of high-throughput virtual screening. Because computers and software continue to evolve rapidly, other researchers who are interested in high-throughput screening should consider these general guidelines, rather than trying to meet specific technical parameters.

14 Oct 2015 – Next-Level Screening: Predicting Material Properties
A new paper from the Clean Energy Project team reveals that they can now use multi-layer artificial neural networks to predict the electrical properties of novel molecules without actually simulating the entire molecule. This advance was made possible by the enormous number of simulations done for the Clean Energy Project, and promises to enable screening of many more molecules than the team was able to address in their previous work.

05 Aug 2015 – Open science: sharing our clean water breakthrough data with all scientists
The Computing for Clean Water team is pleased to announce that the breakthrough paper we published online last month on the use of nanotechnology for more efficient water filtration will be available in the August print edition of Nature Nanotechnology. With our results published, we're now making the underlying data available to other interested scientists and discussing the attention our work has gotten, both from international experts in the field and from the world media.

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.

09 Feb 2015 – Making progress against two of the world’s deadliest diseases
The GO Fight Against Malaria team has just published a paper in which they describe an unexpected benefit of their research: they’ve identified two compounds that could advance the future development of new drugs to treat tuberculosis, including drug-resistant tuberculosis. These results open up a new front in the fight against tuberculosis, which is constantly evolving to resist existing treatments.

12 Nov 2014 – A new lead in the fight against dengue fever
The Discovering Dengue Drugs research team has published a paper describing a new drug candidate that was discovered with the help of World Community Grid volunteers. This drug candidate has no known adverse risks, and seems to be an attractive candidate for preclinical studies. A new antiviral treatment would be hugely beneficial for the roughly half of the world’s population that is at risk of contracting dengue or other related viruses such as hepatitis C, yellow fever and West Nile.
