The Lister Institute of Preventative Medicine was originally established in 1891. The founders, which included the illustrious surgeon and pioneer of medical research, Joseph Lister, established the institute with two primary aims: to undertake fundamental scientific research into the causes, prevention and treatment of disease in man and animals, and to prepare and supply special protective and curative materials such as vaccines and antitoxins. They receive over 100 applications on average and currently award around six fellowships annually, each worth £250,000, provided under flexible terms to help researchers achieve the maximum impact with their work. They also provide funding for students to spend time doing a short research project working in laboratories with Institute Fellows and former Fellows during their summer holidays. The Gallery Partnership has provided IT solutions for charities for the last 20 years and has recently developed a new cloud-based version of their longstanding successful grants software Benefactor, aptly named “BenefactorCloud.” The Lister Institute are the first client to adopt the new version and pilot the software.
