There is no cost to participate and no impact on your computer use. The project software cannot detect or transfer anything on your machine but project-specific information. It just allows your computer to screen molecules that may be developed into drugs to fight cancer. Each individual computer analyzes a few molecules and then sends results back over Internet for further research. This project is anticipated to be largest computational chemistry project ever undertaken and represents a genuine hope to find a better way to fight cancer.
The computational power to perform research of this scale is only available through generosity of individuals like you!
The research is being conducted by Department of Chemistry at University of Oxford in England and National Foundation for Cancer Research.

From a personal experience I’ve been involved in project for several months. Apart from a small icon displayed on my task bar I’d never know software is installed and working. It has had no impact on speed at which my computer operates. But positive feelings experienced from knoiwing I am making a difference are something I want to share with you.
Please think about being a member. It will only take five minutes of your time to start your involvement, and download software. Do it now! Please. Also if you do sign up send an email and let me know. Thanks.
