Botanical Encounters

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 18th Jan 2018

In 1911, Henry Wellcome’s agent, Paira Mall, was sent to India to collect objects and local botanical knowledge for both Wellcome’s museum and the potential development of pharmaceutical products.

But the significance of plants in wellbeing goes far beyond their use in medicinal drugs.

Join us to explore the therapeutic role of plants and spices in traditional practices, biomedicine and in the home.
