About this blog
The Wellcome Trust supports research in medical history and humanities. We also published the Wellcome History magazine three times a year, allowing members of the research community to share details of their latest work. The final issue was published in December 2014. This blog expands on the magazine, giving more people easier access to the articles and allowing you to join in the discussion.
