The Roslin Institute is a part of the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine of the University of Edinburgh. It is a National Institute of Biosciences which receives Institute Strategic Programme Grant funding from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council. The Institute undertakes research focussed on the health and welfare of animals, and applications of basic animal sciences in human and veterinary medicine, the livestock industry and food security. With dedicated knowledge transfer and public engagement teams, Roslin has an excellent track record in the dissemination of results and transfer of knowledge to industry to ensure maximum impact from its research. The Roslin Institute has recently attracted funding for three major initiatives: the formation of an Agri-Tech Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock, the Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics & Health, and Roslin Technologies Ltd. via equity investment to aid translation of our research. All these initiatives advance our core goal of sustainable intensification of farm animal production in the UK and low- and middle-income countries to enhance societal and economic prosperity.
