"Save History of Medicine at UCL" /Salvem la Història de la Medicina a UCL

Dear Friends,

I have just read and signed the online petition "Save History of Medicine at UCL" (which I do copy below), distributed my Vivian Nutton, Emeritus Professor of History of Medicine, -a most admired mentor throughout my accademic life.

Dear Colleagues,

As many people will already know, on March 31, the Wellcome Trust abruptly announced that it intended to withdraw its funding from the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, which would be closed completely on September 30, 2012. A similar statement followed from UCL.

You are invited to sign the petition against closure that is now online at 


and to pass details of it on to others known to you who might also support our cause.

Further information is available on our website and the opportunity to comment on the closure can be found on http://friendsofwtchom.blogspot.com

With thanks for your support,

Vivian Nutton
Emeritus Professor of the History of Medicine

I personally agree with what this petition says, and I think you might
agree, too.  If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider
signing yourself.

Best wishes,

Teresa Huguet-Termes
