Roslin Technologies works with academics using a variety of models; from direct funding for early pipeline projects to leverage and joint funding ventures for feasibility and development studies.

Dr. Karen Fairlie-Clarke has a background in molecular biology, parasitology and immunology. Her role is to engage with academics to identify and support projects suitable for technology transfer and commercialisation through Roslin Technologies’ development pipeline.

– Animal nutrition

As an UK based SME, we are also eligible for UKRI and other funding body submissions.
Sheep farming

We currently have strategic partnerships in conjunction with BBSRC funding to develop a vaccine delivery vehicle for sheep and improve aquaculture production systems.

We are also working on a variety of stem cell projects with academic partners.
