Archive of Wellcome’s Mosaic science articles

A story from 2017, by Neil Steinberg. Photo by Dave Imms, headline by me.

My favourite thing that I’ve ever worked on is Mosaic, the Wellcome Trust’s online magazine of longform stories about science and health. It ran from 2014 to 2019, which feels now like the blink of an eye – but, at a whopping 43 Trusses, was a pretty respectable lifespan for an online publication.

The writing was great, the topics were fascinating, the artwork was fabulous, the headline meetings were a hoot, and the awards were just frequent enough to keep us gratified but not cocky. I copyedited maybe 60% of the pieces, and I loved it. (I still suspect that the word “longform” is longform for “long”, but hell, those stories earned their length.)

And, now that Wellcome is (in February 2023) taking down the Mosaic website, I decided to organise an unofficial mausoleum of the magazine that I’d helped to midwife, as the articles now exist on the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. No doubt a lot of the content is dated, but hey, posterity and all that.

Below is listed not quite everything. I’ve left out some of the smaller supporting pieces that weren’t much more than a list of links; sadly, some of the fancier content like infographics and videos hasn’t transferred to WayBack, and in some cases it’s already disappeared. I’ve included film links where there were transcripts.

I think I’ve got all the main written stories, although inattention or any lapses in Mosaic’s tagging system may have let one or two slip through the cracks. Let me known if you spot any errors – the best way to reach me is on Twitter: @SnoozeInBrief.

Disclaimer: this list is entirely a personal, unofficial effort, independent of Wellcome. Feel free to save the list or reproduce any or all of it elsewhere.

Looking over this list now, I think these stories amount to an absolutely fucking spectacular body of work, and I’m proud to have played a small part in applying the spit and polish.
