Projects

Wellcome Trust Research Resources projects

Wellcome Trust funding has enabled LHSA to preserve and catalogue a selection of our twentieth century folder-based case notes, and supported a cataloguing and conservation project for our UNESCO-awarded HIV/AIDS collections.

 

Find out more about these projects here.

 

These collections are eligable for Wellcome Trust Research Bursaries. For more information on this scheme, please see the Wellcome Trust Research Bursaries page.
