Wellcome Trust publishes Annual Review 2013

The Wellcome Trust's Annual Review 2013 is now available, presenting a selection of our major activities and achievements in the year from October 2012 to September 2013.

This year, the Wellcome Trust has supported the brightest minds to make discoveries and innovations and to promote better health for individuals and society.

We made a major award to an Institute of Metabolic Science to investigate obesity, diabetes and related diseases, and we launched a new funding scheme to promote research, across the globe, into the connections between the changing environment and our future health.

The Wellcome Library digitised over a million pages of documents from the history of genetics and made them freely available online, and a highly acclaimed Wellcome Collection exhibition encouraged 136,000 visitors to explore artistic perspectives on death.

Three research teams we support are working to develop technologies with the aim of helping to diagnose, monitor and control infectious diseases. Among other Trust-funded projects are research to reveal the biological processes that cause cancer and work on a new brain-imaging system to make epilepsy surgery safer and more accurate.

You can read the Annual Review on our website. A Summary Annual Review is also available, which highlights some of the stories and key facts and figures for 2012/13.
