@neurIST is focussed on cerebral aneurysms and intends to provide an integrated decision support system to assess the risk of aneurysm rupture in patients and to optimize their treatments.

Wide In Silicio Docking On Malaria (WISDOM)
The WISDOM initiative aims at developing new drugs for neglected and emerging diseases with a particular focus on malaria.
An objective of the WISDOM project is to develop a full virtual screeening pipeline on the grid. The data challenges presently deployed on the different international grids are focussed on docking but efforts are already under way to extend the virtual screening pipeline to molecular dynamics.

The Health-e-Child project aims at developing an integrated healthcare platform for European paediatrics, providing seamless integration of traditional and emerging sources of biomedical information. The long-term goal of the project is to provide uninhibited access to universal biomedical knowledge repositories for personalised and preventive healthcare, large-scale information-based biomedical research and training, and informed policy making.

cancer Biomedical Informations Grid (caBIG™)
caBIG™ is an information network enabling all constituencies in the cancer community – researchers, physicians, and patients – to share data and knowledge.  The components of caBIG™ are widely applicable beyond cancer as well.

Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside
i2b2 is an NIH-funded National Center for Biomedical Computing based at Partners HealthCare System. The i2b2 Center is developing a scalable informatics framework that will bridge clinical research data and the vast data banks arising from basic science research in order to better understand the genetic bases of complex diseases.

Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BIRN)
The Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BIRN) is a geographically distributed virtual community of shared resources offering tremendous potential to advance the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

European Grid Initiative (EGI)
The European Grid Initiative aims to establish a sustainable grid infrastructure in Europe. Driven by the needs and requirements of the research community, it is expected to enable the next leap in research infrastructures, thereby supporting collaborative scientific discoveries in the European Research Area (ERA). The main foundations of EGI are the National Grid Initiatives (NGI), which operate the grid infrastructures in each country. EGI will link existing NGIs and will support the setup and initiation of new NGIs. The EGI Organization starts its operations in 2010.

Enabling Grids for E-science (EGEE)
The EGEE project brings together scientists and engineers from more than 90 institutions in 32 countries world-wide to provide a seamless Grid infrastructure for e-Science that is available to scientists 24 hours-a-day. Conceived from the start as a four-year project, the second two-year phase started on 1 April 2006, and is funded by the European Commission. Expanding from originally two scientific fields, high energy physics and life sciences, EGEE now integrates applications from many other scientific fields, ranging from geology to computational chemistry.
