16 Nov 2014 – Decades of Discovery: Here’s to the next 10 years of humanitarian science
We’ve reached the end of our six-week decade of discovery celebrations - marking 10 years of scientific success. Since October, we’ve been revisiting key projects from the last decade and highlighting some of the fantastic achievements that you’ve helped make possible. We’ve also been running a competition to encourage more people to join World Community Grid. We’d like to thank you again for your support and remind you why it’s so important to keep spreading the word...

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.

10 Nov 2014 – Decade of Discovery: A new drug lead to combat dengue fever
For week five of our decade of discovery celebrations we’re looking back at the Discovering Dengue Drugs - Together project, which helped researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston search for drugs to help combat dengue - a debilitating tropical disease that threatens 40% of the world’s population. Thanks to World Community Grid volunteers, researchers have identified a drug lead that has the potential to stop the virus in its tracks.

28 Oct 2014 – Decade of discovery: achieving a breakthrough in childhood cancer
To mark week three of our decade of discovery celebrations, we’re focusing our efforts on childhood cancer research. Through the Help Fight Childhood Cancer project, World Community Grid volunteers powered the screening of over three million drug candidates for neuroblastoma – a common and dangerous form of childhood cancer. Through this screening, researchers identified seven drug candidates that showed great potential for drug development – a breakthrough that could save many young lives.
