For anyone who might have missed this WCG e-mail, this is just a little heads-up.
[font=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]As you might know, World AIDS Day has been established to draw attention to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Millions are suffering from this disease.

Since November 2005, World Community Grid has had the great opportunity to support the innovative research underway at The Scripps Research Institute to advance the discovery of drugs which have the potential to treat and perhaps prevent the viruses involved in AIDS. This is the "FightAIDS@Home" that many of you run every day on your laptops and PCs for World Community Grid, helping us make progress against this horrible disease.

For World AIDS Day, we are honored to be hosting a live webcast with Dr. Alex Perryman from The Scripps Research Institute, where he will provide an overview and an update about the FightAIDS@Home project. The webcast will be on December 1, 2010, and it will start at 3:00PM Eastern Standard Time (USA) which is 20:00 Coordinated Universal Time.

The visual on the webcast will be a presentation and the voice will be Dr. Perryman. Time permitting, you will be able to ask questions via a text chat interface and Dr. Perryman will try to answer them.

The webcast will start promptly at 3:00PM Eastern Standard Time (USA) which is 20:00 Coordinated Universal Time. Please join a few minutes early so that you're sure not to miss anything.

Access to the webcast is via this link:

And whether or not you can join the web cast, make sure your laptop, PC or Mac is running World Community Grid, and let your friends know this easy way to participate in World AIDS Day!

Thank you,

The World Community Grid Team

P.S. We will post the video of the webcast on YouTube and in the World Community Grid News & Update section. We'll send you a link to the video after the webcast. Only the presentation will be recorded, not the question and answer session.
