From the blog: Dr. Pande's work is at the forefront of both distributed computing and molecular simulation experiments: an extremely valuable combination when trying to model the movement of millions of atoms at a time. Predicting the fundamental processes of life to better understand diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, or even cancer is not easy, but with the true ingenuity Dr. Pande and his team at Stanford, great strides have been made.
