15 Dec 2015 – Working to detect lung and ovarian cancers before they start
Recent stages of the Mapping Cancer Markers (MCM) project have illuminated the protein-protein interactions and biological pathways involved in lung cancer, and have also suggested surprising results about its biomarkers. Once this current stage is complete, MCM will transition to analyzing ovarian cancer. Thanks to your help, we are making discoveries and helping the international research community. Dr. Jurisica, in particular, is one of the most frequently cited researchers worldwide.

08 Dec 2015 – Book chapter: World Community Grid will contribute to the future of HIV research
We've been invited to write a chapter for an upcoming book: The Future of HIV-1 Therapeutics. Our chapter focuses on structure-based drug design, and discusses the benefits of "in silico" modeling for dramatically expanding the scope and effectiveness of structure-based research. We pay particular attention to the benefits of the large-scale computation network that we found in World Community Grid.
