A team of undergraduates from Abertay University in Dundee has created Sanitarium, a game that invites people to play doctor.Using scarce resources they must treat as many TB patients as they can.

Behind the game lies a mathematical model developed at St Andrews University that uses data from human interactions to simulate a drug trial. The data collected by the game could help deliver new drug treatments to the developing world quicker and cheaper than ever before.
