In the last research assessment exercise, it was rated top in the UK for medical research submitted to the Hospital-based Clinical Subjects Panel.

All of the work was rated at International level and 40% at the very highest “world-leading” level.

The University’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies was the top ranked vet school in the UK with the highest percentage of “world-leading” research.


Recent developments include the new Medical School in The Chancellor's Building and the bringing together of three research fields in The Queen's Medical Research Institute, both at the Little France site adjacent to the new Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

Development has now begun on land south of the Royal Infirmary set aside for a Biomedical Research Park, where the first building, the Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine, is now being constructed.

Work has also begun on a new building for the School of Veterinary Studies and a new Research Institute, both at Easter Bush, south of Edinburgh.
