Support the Consortium

Our supporters have made the Consortium more effective. Working together, we have enrolled more Consortium member institutions. We have provided fellowships for researchers, organized working groups for scholars from around the globe and produced public events shedding historical perspective on contemporary concerns.

Every contribution, at any level, helps to promote excellence in scholarship and to inform and elevate public discussion of historical and contemporary issues in science, technology and medicine. Your individual support also encourages others to help. If you have given in the past, please renew your support. If you have not given before, please make a contribution.

Many thanks for making our work possible.
