The Roslin Institute
Roslin Logo


Engaging in collaborations and strategic partnerships with companies to translate the Institute's research.

The Roslin Institute aims to enhance the lives of animals and humans through world class research in animal biosciences. Collaborating with industry is a crucial part of achieving our aim and we value our partnerships. We have extensive experience and a strong track record of working with companies.

We have many ongoing relationships with companies working in the animal breeding, animal health and welfare (livestock and companion animals), biotechnology and human health sectors.

We are committed to developing win-win relationships with companies, and are very proud that more than two thirds of the Institute’s senior scientists are actively engaged with industry partners.
