Over the years HealthGrid has developed close relationships with Asian researchers, through initiatives such as WISDOM, which has been used to help find drug targets for malaria and to monitor the evolution of the flu virus.
So it seems like an appropriate time for us to release our new e-ScienceBriefing, which takes a special look at distributed computing in the Asia-Pacific. As well as healthcare, Asian-Pacific researchers are putting grids, clouds and volunteering to good use in regional problems such as averting massive damage and loss caused by Earthquakes.
You can read more about how these technologies are developing and being used in this region by reading the briefing on the e-ScienceTalk website. Or if you're lucky enough to be in Bristol at HealthGrid11 pick up a copy from the table outside the lecture hall or from the cafe.
