We reached 1,000 years in September 2020. 

 

Now lets do 2,500.

Your spare computing power can help me do this. 

Your computer and Krembil Research Institute's World Community Grid makes this possible.

Security - Common Questions

Can I be sure the software is what it says it is?

 

All the World Community Grid software is digitally signed, which verifies its authenticity. The BOINC software is signed by the University of California.

 

Can I be sure the software has no known vulnerabilities?

 

University of California does regular security audits of the software. This includes the agent software that you download and the project software written by the scientists.

How is the grid kept safe?

 

All the communication between World Community Grid and your computer uses SSL. This is the same level of encryption used by websites for online shopping and banking.

THE GOAL

Hi, my name is Sawyer and I'm 17 years old. My dad has brain cancer - and I need your help. My dad was lucky. He had emergency brain surgery, a second awake brain surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Treatment is ongoing. I need your help to find the next treatment and help cure my dad.

 

Cancer researchers need to analyze billions of cancer markers using computers. Without enough computer power, research can often take decades. With access to your spare computer power as part of Sawyer's Cancer Fighting Network, breakthroughs can be made in months, not years.

 

Started when I was 13, I set an audacious goal of reaching 1,000 years of cancer research processing time in only one year. On September 7th, 2020—less than one year later—we reached our goal. Thank you so much to each and every one of you who helped us reach the goal. Now we are on our way to 2,500 years!
