The UD Cancer Research Project

It's a team in the United Devices Cancer Research Project:
http://www.grid.org/projects/cancer/

You install a UD agent on your computer, and it works away in the background, trying to find a cure for cancer.

Because your operating system's process-scheduler gives it the lowest priority, it only slows your computer down for a minute every eight hours or so, when it transmits the results of each task to the server and downloads the next task.

You are then awarded points for the amount of effort expended by your computer, and you can claim coloured indicators on WTAworld: Blue after your computer has completed the first task, Bronze when it gets to 10000 points, Silver for 25000, Gold for 50000, Jolt for 100000 (I recently got my Jolt, a year after I started) and Uranium for 250000.
