United Devices works just like the Seti client, using distributed processing to help process data.

As a first step to find a cure, the NFCR Centre must evaluate the cancer fighting potential of hundreds of millions of individual molecules. It is anticipated that about 24 million hours of computer time will be required to accomplish this task—considered to be the largest computational chemistry project ever undertaken ... and now you can be a part of it.

A lot of people on this board may have been affected by cancer one way or another, and as extra incentive to help out you can win prizes from UD's monthly promotions.

This was noted in Popular Science this month.
