We support researchers, we take on big health challenges, we campaign for better science, and we help everyone get involved with science and health research.
Wellcome is a politically and financially independent foundation.
Our founder, Sir Henry Wellcome, was a medical entrepreneur, collector and philanthropist. What we do today reflects the breadth of his interests, and his conviction that health can be improved when research generates, tests and investigates new ideas. Our governance is based on an updated version of Henry’s will.
