Partnership is central to Roslin Tech’s model, Karen Fairlie-Clarke to tell CIEL event today
The partnership between science and industry is central to Roslin Tech’s strategy and business plans, our Innovation and Engagement Manager Dr Karen Fairlie-Clarke will relay at an online event organised by the Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL), an industry body dedicated to helping introduce innovative technologies and processes into livestock production.
Roslin Tech, which works closely with the Roslin Institute and the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, aims to take cutting-edge technology developed in-house and by our academic partners and translate this into solutions for the global agricultural and veterinary sectors. While our relationships with our business and commercial partners around the world are important, equally vital are our relations with the scientists with whom we work closely. Karen is responsible for engagement with the scientific community to support commercial development of their groundbreaking endeavours.
Our collaborative projects in relation to livestock at present include our data-driven breeding programmes, diagnostics for diseases such as Trypanosomiasis, vaccines for diseases including E. coli O157, and a unique new vaccine vehicle for treating goats and sheep.
