With the publication of our Strategic Plan 2010-20, we set out a new vision statement. In addition, we identified exploring medicine in its historical, cultural and social context as a key focus area and set out five major challenge areas to help meet our vision. The research should demonstrate how it relates to our focus areas and how – directly or indirectly – it enables the Wellcome Trust to achieve its broad strategic vision.
