We are delighted to welcome Professor Bruce Whitelaw to the Roslin Technologies Board of Directors. As one of our two University of Edinburgh nominated Non-Executive Directors, Bruce will play a key role in overseeing our activities and strategic direction as we move forward into a new phase of growth.
Through his roles as Interim Director of the Roslin Institute and Chairman of the Roslin Innovation Centre, we are pleased to continue our strong connection with the Institute and the world-leading scientific advancements that they are known for.
Bruce added, “there are many research areas of mutual interest between Roslin Tech and the Roslin Institute. I am excited to promote Roslin Technologies to the wider Institute, connecting both our networks for global reach across industry and academia.”
The Roslin Tech Board of Directors is comprised of an innovative mix of academics, industry experts, and experienced investment entrepreneurs.
