Research Funding

The Moredun Research Institute is internationally recognised for its work on the research of diseases which undermine biological efficiency, impair animal welfare or threaten public health; developing strategies for improved control and prevention of disease. The Institute maintains specialist diagnostic and disease surveillance services to facilitate epidemiological investigations and facilitate early awareness of emerging problems. The work is responsive to national needs and encourages best practice. It is also in the public interest.

The funding for these activities is derived from a variety of sources either through external research funding which is competitively sourced or work commissioned by the Scottish Government through the Rural and Environment Science and Analytical Services (RESAS) division, a portfolio of strategic scientific research and related activities to support the development and delivery of rural and environmental policy and achievement of the Government’s purpose and wider objectives as set out in the National Performance Framework.
