The real world applications of this research includes potential cures for diseases such as Alzheimer's, cancer, and Parkinson's. Nearly everyone's life has been touched by someone who has had one of these diseases or one of the many other diseases this research is aiming to cure. For more information, please see Stanford's Folding@Home website.

Your in the wrong section

But Yea Folding is a Program set up by standford
To Distribute out simulations of Changes in proteins.

Those changes could be used as information to cure diseases.
