Dr. Pande's blog tonight announced a very exciting breakthrough in Folding's contribution to potentially fighting/defeating Alzheimer's one day, utilizing unique drug design based on our work. I am very excited about this. Check it out:

Wow Doc, action on real drugs, that is so great!
I'm looking forward to hearing the results from clinical trials.

Great news! GPU WUs seem to be tilted directly at Alzheimer's and it's great to hear some of the efforts are coming to fruition.

I didn't see this posted here, apologies if it was and I overlooked it. But the Alzheimer's breakthrough isn't all, there is some exciting F@H related news on the cancer front as well.

The one I'm referring to was the cancer post, which was another interesting breakthrough the day before the Alzheimer's one.

Yes, that cancer post is important because it deals with a drug we are using against cancer right now, but modifying it to reduce side effects which limit its use.
