John Ray Trust Science Prize: Congratulations to Hannah Fisher (Part II PDN), who has just been awarded the John Ray Trust Science Prize for her project constructing and applying an ontology of dermatological disease. John Ray (1627-1705), was one of the most respected natural historians in Europe of his time (www.johnraytrust.co.uk) and worked in taxonomy and natural history, amongst other areas. The Prize recognises the best research project undertaken by an undergraduate at the University of Cambridge in a field in which John Ray would have been interested.
