New Wellcome Trust project in Medical Digital Humanities

Jun 15, 2017


Funding has been awarded by the Wellcome Trust for a six month-project to extend the Samtla system to medical archives, specifically the UK Medical Heritage archive, which represents a highly variable collection of primary source material in different media, time periods, and languages.  The project represents a new form of interdisciplinary collaboration, involving medical humanities researchers interested in adopting digital tools for exploring medical archives, to enable them to acquire a broader understanding of the depth and breadth of information stored in medical archives held by the Wellcome Trust.
