Use your computer to help with cancer research

Use your computer's idle time to research cancer, muscular dystrophy, aids, clean water and many other projects beneficial to all of us.

Simply register at the World Community Grid, choose the projects you want to help with and download their software for Linux, Mac or Windows.

The program will then run in the background when your computer is idle.

The BOINC computer grid is the largest in the world - basically half a million computers, like you and me, working together to produce 5.6 petaFlops to perform complex calculations that would normally take years - even for the most powerful computer.
