Wellcome Trust


The Wellcome Trust is a global charitable foundation dedicated to achieving extraordinary improvements in human and animal health. We spend around £600 million every year both in the UK and internationally achieving our mission: supporting the brightest minds in biomedical research and the medical humanities.

Our broadly defined mission allows us to respond flexibly to medical needs and scientific opportunities. As well as tackling immediate priorities, our independence and long-term perspective enable us to support research that will benefit future generations.
