Webinar: Next Steps for Folding@Home — a Distributed Computing Project for Protein Folding, by Vijay Pande

June 3rd, 2014

Folding@Home is a large-scale volunteer distributed computing project started in 2000 by Vijay Pande, Stanford. For over a decade, Professor Pande’s group has increased the computing power of Folding@Home through the development of new software algorithms and infrastructure, such as the incorporation of new hardware innovations like GPUs. That tremendous computing power has enabled significant advances in the simulation and understanding of diseases like Alzheimer’s Disease, malaria, various cancers, and other diseases at the molecular scale. Professor Pande will give a brief introduction to Folding@Home and the successes in the project so far. He will also discuss plans to greatly enhance Folding@Home capabilities through new initiatives. This webinar is planned for June 3rd, 2014 at 9.00 AM Pacific Time.
