Midlothian Science Zone - Edinburgh Technopole

Providing support to the animal health, life sciences and agri-tech sectors

Edinburgh is a global leader in animal health, specialising in bioscience, and arguably has the largest concentration of animal science related expertise anywhere in Europe. To harness this exceptional level of experience and intellect, a cluster of leading organisations have come together to form the Midlothian Science Zone.

The Midlothian Science Zone undertakes basic and translational science to tackle pressing issues in animal genetics and genomics, development, health and welfare and their implications for human health. This is truly collaborative and involves:

However, it is not all animal science; occupiers at Edinburgh Technopole also have access to a critical concentration of world-leading analytical research, innovation and funding opportunities.
