New image display celebrates 75 years of the Wellcome Trust
25 July 2011
The display illustrates the stories of eight people who have been central in helping us to pursue our vision of achieving extraordinary improvements in human and animal health, using lightboxes and prints taken from our world-class image library, Wellcome Images.
Beginning with Henry Foy, the Wellcome Trust's first scientific employee, the display takes us on a brief tour of some of the Trust's achievements through the people who have been instrumental in our successes.
The images on display include a sketch of the DNA double helix by Francis Crick alongside a portrait of Sir John Sulston, a key figure in the Human Genome Project. Also featured are Nick White, researcher and developer of the new leading treatment for malaria, and Roy Porter, prolific and influential historian of medicine.
The images will be on display in Wellcome Collection until December 2011. The display is part of a calendar of events taking place throughout the year in celebration of our 75th Anniversary. Find out more at our 75th anniversary events page or see a sample of the images that will be on display in our image gallery, below.
