The results that the World Community Grid volunteer community has "crunched" on the volunteers' computers have been sent to research scientists around the world for analysis. These results have helped to advance humanitarian causes such as researching treatments for AIDS, Muscular Dystrophy, different forms of Cancer, Schistosoma, Malaria, Leishmaniasis and more. The volunteers' efforts have also helped advance research which addresses important environmental issues, including improving water quality, developing technologies to access clean water, increasing ways to harness solar power, and improving world nutrition. None of this would have been possible without the contributions of all the volunteers.
As the community has grown, the compute power available for humanitarian research has accelerated. It has taken a community of over 590,000 individuals, who have collectively contributed to World Community Grid, to achieve this major accomplishment.
