Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy Phase II on World Community Grid Update

The HCMD Phase II project on World Community Grid in two weeks, will have run for one full year. Each day world-wide computers are now contributing an average of ~60 CPU years each and every day to this important project. To date volunteers, including my 58 person team, have contributed 16,071 years (160.071 centuries) worth of computation power to this project. This brings the project to roughly 22% completion, so there is still much to be done to… Continue

Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy Phase II Launched on the World Community Grid

The long awaited Phase II Research Project for Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy Phase II on World Community Grid began distributing Work Units this morning 5/12/09. I have been waiting anxiously for this launch for months and am very excited that it has finally gone live. I have already tasked my 5 computers, including the powerful machine running 8 simultaneous Research processes, to now only run HCMD2 research until this project completes.



Here is the link to the WCG Research page… Continue

Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy Phase II Nearing Launch on the World Community Grid

Excellent news in our ongoing battle that I have been following quite closely...



World Community Grid and researchers supported by Decrypthon, a partnership between AFM (French Muscular Dystrophy Association), CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research) and IBM are investigating protein-protein interactions for 40,000 proteins whose structures are known, with particular focus on those proteins that play a role in neuromuscular diseases. The database of information produced… Continue

First Visit to Cincinnati Childrens and Doctor Wong

After being told yesterday that it would be August or September before getting Eric into Cincinnati Children's to see Doctor Wong, i got a call today that an opening materialized next week. Flights and hotel are not yet in place, but I told my boss "I am outta here next week!" and got full support to do so.



In order to be affordable at all, I will have to fly out with him on Saturday and tool around Cincinnati for 2 1/2 days prior to the three days of hospital time. We will also have… Continue
