Dr. Dmitri Klimov in the School of Systems Biology has partnered with Parabon Computation Inc to develop a new computational tool to study through molecular  simulations the  mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease. This work is  funded by NIH through R41 grant “Distributed REMD Simulation for Probing Alzheimer Molecular Mechanisms” awarded to Dr. Klimov. As a part of this project he and Parabon have initiated public campaign “Compute Against Alzheimer’s Disease” (see the announcement at  http://newsdesk.gmu.edu/2014/04/mass-number-crunching-may-help-crack-alzheimers-disease-code/). This campaign solicits Internet users to donate computing power of their PCs for modeling proteins  involved in Alzheimer’s disease.

If you wish to support their studies and contribute to finding the cure against Alzheimer’s, please go to http://www.computeagainstalzheimers.org/ and download an application which will perform molecular simulations on your PC when it is not in use. This application will not interfere with your work on the computer, because once you touch the keyboard or mouse it goes to a dormant state waiting when your PC is idling again.
