Computing heroes

The University's computational biology group is one of the finalists in the Computerworld science honours for 2002. The group, led by Professor Arun Holden, were nominated for their work in virual tissue engineering, creating detailed cell and tissue level models of heart behaviour to help improve techniques for treating heart disease.

The awards are presented annually to men and women around the world who have achieved outstanding progress for society through the visionary use of information technology, and nominations come from the directors of leading IT companies. The University of Leeds was nominated by chairman, president and CEO of Sun microsystems, Scott G McNealy.
