The Roslin Institute is an animal sciences research institute located at Easter Bush, Midlothian, Scotland. Roslin has made many other contributions to animal sciences, especially in the area of livestock improvement and welfare through applications of Quantitative Genetics. The Roslin Institute at the University of Edinburgh is a new world class research centre. It undertakes top-class basic and translational science to tackle some of the most pressing issues in animal health and welfare, their implications for human health and for the role of animals in the food chain. The Roslin Institute provides holistic solutions to global challenges in human and veterinary medicine and the livestock industry.
The Roslin Institute, the worlds leading animal sciences research institute, has recently joined The University of Edinburghs Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies (R(D)SVS), a global leader in undergraduate veterinary education, production and companion animal medicine and veterinary public health. It also offers courses in MSc in Animal Biosciences, MSc Imaging, Short Courses and CPD in Imaging, MSc Quantitative Genetics and Genome Analysis, Quantitative Genetics & Genome Analysis is a suite of programmes offering specialist routes in Animal Breeding & Genetics, Evolutionary Genetics, or Human Complex Trait Genetics.
The Institute was merged with the Royal School of Veterinary Studies within the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine of The University of Edinburgh. There are currently more than 400 staff and students. In March 2011 The Roslin Institute moved from its previous home in Roslin, a village in Midlothian, to a £60.6M building on the University of Edinburghs Veterinary Campus at Easter Bush, across the road from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies new teaching building. The public engagement strategy of the university complements and contributes to that of the University of Edinburgh, Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the wider Research Councils UK (RCUK) group and Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS), and in doing so demonstrates to the public the relevance and impact of government-funded research.
The research of The Roslin Institute is run over four Scientific Divisions. A further division, Clinical Sciences, supports the clinical research was undertaken. It receives funding from BBSRC. The five Institute Strategic Programmes span the Divisions thus enabling a fully collaborative structure between research groups and maintaining a fully integrative approach to the Institutes research. The Roslin Institutes research also maps onto the six major research themes of the Easter Bush Research Consortium (EBRC). Much of the research is carried out in close collaboration with EBRC partners through studentships and competitively won funding. The Roslin Institute is also a key partner in Edinburgh Infectious Diseases.
