Like everyone else, we are pretty much stuck at home during the fight against the Coronavirus. However, there is a way we can fight back, by participating in the Folding@home project.

Folding@home is a project started by Stanford University and takes advantage of unused CPU and GPU resources to simulate protein movements and folding. More than 400,000 users are participating in the project and its results are used to advance research in diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson and recently, SARS-CoV2.

SWS have started a Folding@home team and we are inviting you to join us!

1. Go to and generate a passkey for you.
