What is The Hub?
The Hub at Wellcome Collection is an exciting
new opportunity that reflects our commitment to the
interdisciplinary study of medicine, health and wellbeing. The Hub
will provide resources and a stimulating space for researchers and
other creative minds to collaborate on a project that will explore
medicine in historical and cultural contexts. This will make a
central contribution to the Trust’s vision of improving human and
Why is The Hub important?
Experiences of health and illness are
profoundly human and intensely personal. In order to explore them
in a truly meaningful way, we can’t rely on the biomedical sciences
alone. At the Wellcome Trust we believe that achieving
extraordinary improvements in health requires a bold new approach
that examines wellbeing from a multitude of perspectives, across a
range of disciplines.
The Hub will be a flagship interdisciplinary
environment that nurtures this approach. It’s a space where
scholars, creative practitioners and scientists can collaborate to
explore the important questions that arise when life meets
medicine. We think this approach will shed fascinating light on
perceptions of health and illness in the past and present. We also
think it will help inform practical medical decisions people will
face in the future.
