The Roslin Institute is always keen to engage the public in order to encourage ownership, understanding, excitement and curiosity in the research undertaken by our scientists.

Our public engagement strategy complements and contributes to that of the University of Edinburgh, BBSRC, the wider RCUK group and BIS, in doing so demonstrating to the public the relevance and impact of government funded research.

These pages provide more information about our science in a form that is accessible to all. We are currently developing these pages so watch this space for interactive demonstrations of The Roslin Institute's research as well as some simple science activities to try yourself.
