Sainsbury checks aspiring university

July 9, 1999

* Science minister Lord Sainsbury this week visited Queen Margaret University College in Edinburgh to look at research projects that the college hopes will help its bid for the full university title. They include helping to diagnose and treat speech disorders and assessing the link between the quantity and quality of nutrients taken in by elderly people and patients with advanced cancer.

Lord Sainsbury said: "These important Foresight projects provide a unique focus for interdisciplinary research. They bring together healthcare professionals and leading researchers, together with technologists and industry to take action today to address the needs of tomorrow."
