   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, specifi​cally 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.

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. ​
