Award for pioneers

The research team behind pioneering software which tracks diseases, including leukaemia, received a prestigious award earlier this month. The 'disease registry application' developed by University computing staff has attracted interest from around the world. The team was presented with the European Enterprise Award by the SAS Institute.

Professor Ray Cartwright - whose team in the leukaemia research fund centre helped develop the software - said it allows the massive amounts of data generated to be handled with much greater consistency.
