Start folding

The Folding@home software runs while you do other things, for example cooking, working or sleeping – hence the name.

While you keep going with your everyday activities, your computer or phone will be handling one of our work units. To put it as simple as possible, a work unit is a part of a bigger problem that we want to solve. And by allowing your computer or phone to solve that problem, you will be helping us get one step closer to finding new answers and insights regarding different diseases.
