School success at the Herald HE Awards

Professor Ghulam Nabi's work on prostate cancer research has been recognised at the Herald Higher Education Awards at a ceremony held in Glasgow. Professor Nabi's work was named Research Project of the Year, a category in which another University project - Hands of X, which is led by Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design's Dr Graham Pullin - was highly commended. Professor Nabi's research has identified a new method offering more successful diagnosis and management of the disease.

Annother University project - the Global Health Challenge - which has engaged students and external partners, picked up the Enhanced Student Learning Award. The Challenge brings together students from across the University to work with external organisations to improve social, cultural and physical wellbeing in individuals and communities. Launched in October 2016, this annual initiative seeks to develop solutions in an enterprising and entrepreneurial way, tackling the problem of health equality under a range of themes.
