OpenPandemics - COVID-19

Scientists at Scripps Research are using World Community Grid to help search for potential treatments for COVID-19, and to build open-source tools to help address future pandemics quickly and early.

Africa Rainfall Project

95% of agriculture in Africa depends on rainfall. This project uses massive computing power, data from The Weather Company, and other data to provide more accurate rainfall forecasts, which will help farmers more successfully raise crops.

Smash Childhood Cancer

Since 2009, World Community Grid has been part of the fight against childhood cancer. This project continues that work by expanding the search for better treatments to more types of childhood cancer.

Help Stop TB

Tuberculosis killed 1.5 million people in 2014, making it one of the world's deadliest diseases. You can help researchers learn more about this disease and how to overcome it.

Mapping Cancer Markers

Mapping Cancer Markers aims to identify chemical markers associated with various types of cancer. This will help researchers detect cancer earlier and design more personalized cancer care by determining an individual's susceptibility to developing cancer and suggest the best treatment for them.
