Dear Chicken Patty,
On August 12, 2011, you're invited to participate in a live webcast to hear an overview and update on World Community Grid's Discovering Dengue Drugs - Together project. The event will be hosted by Dr. Robert Malmstrom from the The University of Texas Medical Branch.
Since 2007, World Community Grid has had the privilege of supporting the innovative research underway at The University of Texas Medical Branch to advance the discovery of finding a cure for Dengue Fever.
This is the "Discovering Dengue Drugs - Together - Phase 2" project that many of you run every day on your laptops and PCs for World Community Grid, helping us make progress towards identifying promising drug candidates to combat the Dengue, Hepatitis C, West Nile, Yellow Fever, and other related viruses. Though hundreds of thousands are afflicted with these diseases each year, many fatally, there are still no effective treatments.
The webcast will take place on August 12, 2011, starting promptly at 11:00AM Eastern Daylight Time (USA), which is 15:00 Coordinated Universal Time. Please join a few minutes early so that you're sure not to miss anything.
Participants can listen to Dr. Malmstrom while viewing an on-screen presentation. Time permitting, you will be able to ask questions via a text chat interface and Dr. Malmstrom will try to answer them.
