Are there any projects available on BOINC which will assist the search for vaccines or treatments for influenza-type infections?

If there are, then I suggest we as a global community should temporarily park searches for ET and other nice to have projects and help with this.

Drugdiscoveryathome.com (later today to be announced through the various stats sites) is another one. It needs an invitation code though.

Good idea, let's stop the world to find a treatment for influenza, which has killed 42 people, while 108,100 die monthly of Malaria.

progress is progress. try not to alienate some of the host & computers that are around when the malaria project seems to have tons of work. last time i checked. (solving one problem may lead to the solution of another. Or, one's progress may be speed up by another solution.)

give me a good reason why i should turn off wcg which may lead to a number of discoveries in medical and energy field, and focus on malaria.

also, your comment is not valid; due to the fact that the flu (common and non-common) causes tens of thousands of deaths each year as it is a seasonal and non-seasonal event.

i wish we could cure everything and be "Star-Trekkie" in-which there are no major diseases.
