The DENIS Project does research on heart and potentially brain cells. http://denis.usj.es/
As of December 2015, it's entering a new phase. During the summer and fall, the user base developed optimized apps which greatly increased crunching speed. These were approved by the project team, and widely distributed among large crunching teams. This new phase will include the optimized apps, and broaden the scope of research.

DENIS uses volunteer hosts to compute large packets of cardiac electrophysiology simulations. Electrophysiological models are a powerful tool to study the electrical activity of cells under normal or pathological conditions. These models can also help predict the effects of drugs in heart and brain cells. These models are complex and it’s neccessary to simulate them many times (varying the conditions or model parameters). For this reason, researchers in this field usually require high computational power. We have created DENIS as a simulation infrastructure to help researchers. What does it run on?
For now, DENIS is CPU only. Where can I find stats?http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page ... &team=2302http://boincstats.com/en/stats/160/team/list/
This new phase is starting soon. I imagine we can improve on our already impressive 34th place rank!
