'One Medicine' an integrated approach to all medicine.

With access to modern veterinary hospitals and cutting-edge clinical facilities of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies alongside the veterinary surveillance service operated by SRUC, the EBRC is in a strong position to pursue the “One Medicine” agenda.

Our clinical research has particular foci on the genetics and infectious diseases of small and large animals and offers unique opportunities to map between animal and human traits and diseases. For example, many single gene defects of interest in companion animals have counterparts in humans and pets share many of the diseases of human ageing.
