Wellcome Trust

The Wellcome Trust has funded PMU-BIRAC to support a project entitled “Maximising patient Impact through affordable healthcare innovations”. This involves PMU-BIRAC engaging with awardees funded under the Affordable Healthcare in India funding scheme (2008 – 2015), which was aimed at funding supporting Indian-led research to develop safe, effective and affordable healthcare interventions for India and beyond. In addition PMU-BIRAC will undertake outreach activities and help identify funder-synergies in India.

The Wellcome Trust is a global charitable foundation dedicated to improving health. We support bright minds in science, the humanities and the social sciences, as well as education, public engagement and the application of research to medicine.

Our investment portfolio gives us the independence to support such transformative work including the sequencing and understanding of the human genome, research that established front-line drugs for malaria and Wellcome Collection - our free venue for the incurably curious that explores medicine, life and art.
