New issue of Wellcome News

The magazine Wellcome News features articles exploring the research the Wellcome Trust supports, its funding opportunities and wide-ranging activities.

The latest issue (Winter 2011) includes a feature on researchers tackling so-called 'neglected tropical diseases', a quick guide to the neuron, and the winning entries of the 2011 Wellcome Trust Science Writing Prize.

The magazine's 'From the Archive' feature regularly highlights material from the Wellcome Library's collections: in the spotlight in the latest issue is a rather surprisingly item from our holdings, a pair of sandals produced by the fashion manufacturer Red or Dead. Why are these shoes in our collections? All is revealed on pages 32-33 of the new Wellcome News (PDF).
