The Information School's Chemoinformatics Research Group has been awarded the 2012 UKeiG Jason Farradane Award, in recognition of its outstanding 40 year contribution to the information field.
The prize is awarded to the three current members of the group, Professor Val Gillet, Dr John Holliday and Professor Peter Willett.
The judges recognised the Group's status as one of the world's leading centres of chemoinformatics research, a major contributor to the field of information science, and an exemplar in raising the profile of the information profession.
The School has a long association with the Farradane prize. Its second recipient was long time member of staff Professor Mike Lynch in 1980.
