History Timeline

Jan. 28, 2010

The Wellcome Trust History Timeline is an interactive guide to the history of the trust since 1939 profiling its major achievements within the world of medical science and research.

Our timeline contains over 1000 events which can be discovered by visually exploring decades and years, by searching or by following research stories that take users on curated journeys through the timeline. For the less scientific amongst us there is a full glossary and the random event feature. For more advanced users there are content filters, in depth research histories and over 60 detailed biographies. The timeline can also be accessed via a large-scale touch-screen installation that features in the reception-area of Wellcome Trust's London headquarters.
