Hello fellow SIG members:

Let's use the power of our SIG to help cure diseases rather than shape the world around them.

A buddy let me know about a computer program from Stanford University that runs complex protein folding simulations that can help find the cure for many cancers, Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many cancer-related syndromes. If that interests you, download the program. If that doesn't interest you, read the next line and ask yourself again.

Why should I help?: In the time it takes to send a funny email, you could help save someone’s life – potentially your own.

This program works on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Playstation 3!

Download Page, with Instructions if needed: http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download

Information Page with links to success stories in over 20 languages: http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Main

*NOTE: To keep track of how many of your team members are running the program, enter “102855” as your team number after you download the program. In Windows, just right click the FAH icon on your system tray, Left Click “Configure” and enter the number in the “Team number” field.

And if you need help setting up the program, just ask.

As of March 2, 2010, there are 33 active members of team Mutaku using FAH. If you want to see if this number has grown before you make the choice to download, you can do so right here:

Let’s build that team, and save a life.

Thanks,

-Matt
