Vitabiotics Sponsors Forthcoming Science Museum Medicine Galleries

The Body’s Building Blocks will sit inside the Medicine and Bodies gallery. It was chosen by Vitabiotics and the Lalvani family for a major contribution in recognition of the Science Museum’s commitment to create the world’s leading centre for the public understanding of medicine.

The Medicine and Bodies gallery is one of five new galleries at the Science Museum which will be part of the Medicine Galleries, due to open in autumn 2019. Visitors arriving at this spectacular new space will be greeted by a specially commissioned sculpture by artist Marc Quinn entitled Self-Conscious Gene. The Medicine Galleries will be free to visit and open all year round.

More than 2,500 extraordinary medical artefacts spanning 500 years of history and based on the collections of Sir Henry Wellcome and the Science Museum will be on display in the Galleries, which will become the largest exhibition space in the Museum.

The galleries will cover more than 3000m2 and will reveal personal stories about how our lives have been transformed by changes in medicine and health over the last 400 years.

Vitabiotics Founder and Chairman, Professsor Kartar Lalvani OBE, said: “Vitabiotics has always put scientific research at the core of its products and philosophy, with the message ‘science of healthy living.’ We are therefore immensely proud to support this project at the iconic Science Museum, and, given our understanding of the importance of vitamins and minerals in the body, we are delighted to be supporting ‘The Body’s Building Blocks’ section of the Gallery, which is especially close to our heart.

“Vitabiotics was the first ever vitamin company to receive the Queen’s Award for Innovation on the basis of its scientific research, and has a greater and more diverse range of clinical studies on its products than any other UK vitamin supplement brand.”

The Science Museum aims to inspire visitors with award-winning exhibitions, iconic objects and stories of incredible scientific achievement. Its world-class collection forms an enduring record of scientific, technological and medical advancement from across the globe.

Vitabiotics Chairman and Founder Professor Lalvani, OBE, made a Fellow of the Science Museum – 10th May 2018

In May 2018, Professor Kartar Lalvani was granted the great honour of becoming a Fellow of the Science Museum, joining a very highly distinguished group which includes Professor Stephen Hawking and British astronaut Timothy Peake. Her Majesty The Queen is also a Science Museum Fellow and HRH The Princess Royal, Princess Anne received the Fellowship on the same evening.

Professor Lalvani accepted the Fellowship, from Science Museum Chairman Dame Mary Archer. He told the audience, "It is truly one of my life's greatest privileges to accept this Fellowship. To be honoured by this renowned, iconic institution is the highest accolade that I could imagine. Even more humbling is the honour of joining such a distinguished group of truly remarkable Fellows, including some of the world's greatest scientists."

“We all appreciate how the Science Museum can genuinely engage and inspire the continuing next generations of scientists.”
