    We discuss a model of protein folding, the IMP model of a random heteropolymer. We discuss the thermodynamic behavior of a linear heteropolymer in which the interaction between different monomers contains a quenched random component. We show the existence, along with the usual coil and globule phases, of a new folded phase, characterized by long relaxation times and by the existence of few stable states. We discuss further relevant features of the model. We describe massively parallel simulations of this model on the APE-100 supercomputer.
