College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine

The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine is the leading research centre in the UK for research in both clinical medicine and clinical veterinary medicine.

Interdisciplinary research is at the heart of the College's philosophy. Whether working at one of our two major human medical campuses or at our veterinary campus at Easter Bush, research students benefit from our 'lab bench to bedside' approach, whereby patients are seen in the same location as the fundamental research that's taking place. This results in strengthened collaboration between basic scientists and clinician scientists. Our researchers fully embrace the College's 'one medicine' ethos, translating research into patient benefit, whether it's for humans or animals.

Our facilities include:

  • a new Medical School, adjacent to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary
  • the Queen's Medical Research Institute (opened in 2005), which houses three world class medical research centres and over 600 researchers
  • the Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine, with around 500 medical researchers
  • Edinburgh Neuroscience, one of the largest neuroscience groupings in the world
  • recently refurbished pre-clinical research centres on the central campus
  • The Roslin Institute, which will move to a new building on a new, shared campus with the Royal(Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, in spring 2011
  • state-of the-art imaging technologies
  • a new Centre for Regenerative Medicine building, to be opened in 2011
  • Edinburgh BioQuarter, a major medical research commercialisation initiative, currently under construction on the Little France campus.
