To understand how proteins fold.
Quote:
When proteins do not fold correctly, also known as misfolding, there can be serious health consequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many cancers.

If we better understand protein misfolding we can design drugs and therapies to combat these illnesses.

Get it?

Why Fold?

Because it helps understand proteins, but also because its fun and is constantly pushing our systems to the edge.
