The Vesalius Trust is named after the pioneering Renaissance anatomist and physician, Andreas Vesalius. This remarkable individual possessed a zeal for scientific observation and a great desire to share his knowledge with others. The Trust is a 501(c)3 educational foundation established to provide leadership for the advancement of education and research in visual communication for the health sciences. We do this by funding scholarships for medical illustration and biocommunication students, sponsoring research grants, preserving original illustrated arts through the Collection of Art Serving Science and Medicine and organizing an Art and Anatomy Tour.
