The Roslin Institute is a BBSRC Institute associated with the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, the number one-ranked Veterinary School in the UK in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. 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.
In 2011, The Roslin Institute will be moving to the £60.6 million state-of-the-art Easter Bush Research Centre building. Roslin Developments Limited have commissioned this stunning new building, currently under construction on the University of Edinburgh's Easter Bush Veterinary campus, for The Roslin Institute. The project will be funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Research Council and will accommodate scientists from The Roslin Institute and the Scottish Agricultural College.
