Rosetta@home is working to determine and design the 3-dimensional shapes of proteins, in research that may ultimately lead to finding cures for some major human diseases such as HIV, Malaria, Cancer, and Alzheimer's (see Disease Related Research for more information).  They believe they are getting closer to accurately predicting and designing protein structures and protein complexes, one of the holy grails of computational biology, and which requires enourmous computing resources.

Rosetta@home is not for profit and has a very active and responsive project team based at the University of Washington.
