I know people donate CPU time to distributed computing projects for a wide variety of reasons. So I making this thread so that we can all share our reasons for paying electricity bills and hardware purchases just to donate to this project.

Years ago, my mother died of a heart attack and the doctors couldn't tell us what caused it. It was "out of the blue and into the black." I couldn't accept the lack of answers and started digging deeper. I learned that for over 50% of all women their first heart attack is fatal. No one could say why. There are still many ideas but not any proof because very few studies in cartiological science are based on gender. At least not the big ones.

I am donating my money and CPU time to DENIS because it is looking for reasons at cellular level and therefor should save as many women as men.

That's a great reason to crunch. My grandfather had about six heart attacks before he was finally laid to rest.

I hope with more computing power we can answer more questions together whether it's out in space or closer to our hearts

I have computed for several medicine/biology projects along the years on diverse topics, from cancer to neurodegenerative diseases to infections, but never saw a cardiovascular disease project, so being it one of the two top killers (along with cancer) I decided it's time to devote my computer to fighting heart diseases.

My father suffers of atrial fibrillation (treated with Cumadin/Warfarin).
So, i crunched this project.
