World Community Grid Newsletter
Quarter 2, 2006   
Thanks to our outstanding volunteer force, World Community Grid has made great progress since our last newsletter!

We would like to thank you for your continuing participation in our mission to create the world's largest public computing grid. With this grid, we've been able to tackle projects that benefit humanity. Through this newsletter, we will keep you informed of the latest accomplishments, updates on active research, and site enhancements.
Defeating Cancer Together
World Community Grid is contributing to the fight to defeat cancer. The "Help Defeat Cancer" project will use the computational power of World Community Grid to provide the power to analyze a large number of cancer tissue microarrays (TMA) that will help doctors improve treatment and therapy planning for cancer patients.   [read more]

Project Update
The Human Proteome Folding Project — Phase 1 has been completed, and scientists are now examining the results. A soon-to-be published paper with all the Human Proteome Folding results generated by World Community Grid will be made publicly available for other researchers to leverage. The second phase of the project – Human Proteome Folding Project — Phase 2 – was launched in June and holds great promise in uncovering even more information on the role of proteins and their impact on diseases such as malaria.   [read more]

Marist College Project
During the spring 2006 semester, IBM worked with public relations students at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., to tap into their insights and to provide a real-world project on which students could test their PR skills. Marist, a national leader in the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning, became World Community Grid's first university partner in 2004.   [read more]

Partner Testimonials
Creating a strong sense of community is a more challenging task, one that requires multiple strategies - perhaps none more important than the help and support of our dedicated partners. Currently, World Community Grid has more than 200 company, university, association and nonprofit partners - each encouraging their communities of employees, students, faculty and members to join this important initiative.   [read more]
