Collaborative Awards in Humanities and Social Science
Collaborative Awards promote the development of new ideas and bring disciplines together to speed the pace of discovery. This scheme funds teams who are tackling major health-related questions in the humanities and social sciences that require a collaborative approach.
In 1880 Sir Henry Wellcome moved to the UK with his friend Silas Burroughs to found a pharmaceutical company. They soon built the company into a multinational enterprise.Wellcome became a leading figure in the British pharmaceutical industry. He established two laboratories: one physiological and one chemical. Through them, he proved that pharmaceutical research could lead to better medicines.
