Kyran O’Mahoney, Chief Technology Officer at NCBI, said:To be nominated for five awards at The Spiders is a massive achievement for our NCBI Labs team and all who were involved in the five recognised projects. As a charity, to be so forward-thinking about how technology aids our service users and staff is nothing short of incredible. The quality of the work and the vision for progression within our technology teams measures up to any other organisation out there. We’re very proud to be involved in the conversation for these prestigious awards.”

 

Chris White, Chief Executive Officer of NCBI, added: “NCBI Labs’ ability to shift our entire organisation online throughout the pandemic was a mammoth task and they met it head on.

The teams’ achievements are exceptional, and they deserve all the congratulations available.”
