Dr. Natalie Tatum wrote the winning application describing her work on accelerating the discovery of antibiotic booster drugs - i.e., drugs that reduce the chances of antimicrobial drug resistance. In her application, Natalie described how the training opportunities provided by the Collaborative Computational Projects of CCP4 (Software Suite for Macromolecular Crystallography) and CCP5 (Computer Simulation of Condensed Phases) enabled her work.
Dr. Richard Brown wrote the second-placed application describing his work on software
that is used to process biomedical images, specifically those generated by positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance (MR) scanners. In his application, Richard described how being a part of the CCP SyneRBI (Synergistic Reconstruction of Biomedical Images) and thereby connected to the wider CCP communities through CoSeC's network, faciliated his development work and enabled rapid progress.
Dr. Evangelos Papoutsellis (a.k.a. Vaggelis) wrote the thrid-placed application describing his work on the development of software that is essential for the processing of images produced by scanners such as PET, MRI, and a range of computed tomography (CT) scanners. In his application, Vaggelis described how being a part of the CCPi (Tomographic Imaging) and thereby connected to CoSeC's wider network, enabled him to develop an opensource software toolbox with functionality applicable to both CCP SyneRBI and CCPi communities.
