Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 4:34 pm

IBM has launched a new research initiative to use grid technology for AIDS research.

The World Community Grid, counted among the top 10 supercomputers in the world, will work with the La Jolla, Calif.-based Scripps Research Institute in designing new therapeutic tools to counter HIV, the fast-mutating virus that causes AIDS, IBM said Monday.

The initiative, dubbed FightAIDS@Home, will draw idle computing power from more than 170,000 computers.
