Edinburgh Clinical Academic Track (ECAT)

Research centres

The University's research is consolidated in multidisciplinary research centres

Research programmes within the College explicitly link biomedicine and veterinary medicine, promoting the concept of "One Medicine". Our research approach ranges from molecules to man, from bench to bedside, from process to population - and 'from lab to labrador.'

The College has six major research institutes.  Each institute has over 500 members of staff and postgraduate research students.  They are:

  • The Queen’s Medical Research Institute
  • The MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine
  • The Usher Institute of Population Health Sciences and Informatics
  • Edinburgh Neuroscience
  • The Roslin Institute
  • Institute for Regeneration and Repair

Each of these institutes is home to a number of interrelated centres, led by internationally renowned scientists.
