    BaptistBoard.com has grown into an amazing community. I have decided to try and enlist interested BB members in a very innovative way to use their computers to help find cures for many neurodegenerative diseases.
    [email protected] is a distributed computing project. People from throughout the world download and run a small piece of software to band together and form one of the largest supercomputers in the world. The software runs in the background, using "spare" CPU cycles and not interfering with or slowing down any of your regular programs. It basically puts your computer's "extra" power to good use!

    Many human diseases, including many neurodegenerative diseases, are thought to be caused by improper protein folding, or protein misfolding. ALS, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's are just a few of the diseases that could be positively impacted by this project.

    If you would like to contribute to the [email protected] project, please go to [email protected] 's website, download the software and install it. It will ask you for an optional TEAM NUMBER to join. Please enter 47603, BB's team number! Your contribution will be added to the BB Team, and we can keep track of how much of a contribution all BB members make as a community.
