Your Phone Could Cure Zika

Dr. Carolina Horta Andrade, Ph.D., adjunct professor at the Federal University of Goiás in Brazil and the lead researcher on the #OpenZika project on IBM’s World Community Grid, explains how the average person can help scientists computationally evaluate over 20 million compounds in the search for a Zika cure. All you need to do is download an app that automatically provides the spare processing power of your computer (even Android smartphones) to scientists when you are otherwise not using the device.
