College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine

Research culture hub

Learn about the work to support a positive and inclusive research culture within the College, the University and the wider sector.



A vibrant, inclusive research culture is essential to the future success of the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and the University of Edinburgh.  To achieve this all of our research, teaching, learning and innovation activities should be delivered in an environment that is considerate and respectful of one-another’s differences. Our aim is for every student and staff member to be supported to reach their full potential.
