York student wins award

Posted on 16 August 2011

The first successful applicants for the Wellcome Trust Masters Awards were announced today, supporting the brightest minds in the History of Medicine and Medical Humanities.


York's Joanna Lunt was one of the winners of this year's Wellcome Trust Masters Awards in Medical History and Humanities.

The awards are designed to support exceptional students to undertake basic training in research and methods through a one-year Master's course in the History of Medicine or Medical Humanities. The awards include all compulsory university and college fees, as well as the student's stipend.

The competition aims to identify the research leaders of tomorrow, with strong preference given to applicants intending to make a long-term academic career in the subject.

Universities were invited to nominate one candidate accepted onto a History of Medicine or Medical Humanities Master's programme and the applications were assessed by committee. York's decision to nominate Joanna reflected our continuing commitment to developing research excellence in the field of the History of Medicine.

Many congratulations to Joanna!
