REPRODIVAC - Next-generation vaccines and diagnostics to prevent livestock reproductive diseases of worldwide impact
Moredun Research Institute
Moredun Research Institute (MRI) deliverers a broad and varied range of research initiatives on behalf of the Moredun Foundation, which was formed by Scottish Farmers in 1920. The Institute is dedicated to improving the understanding, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases through basic and translational research, and by developing a variety of outreach programmes for farmers, vets and the general public. MRI’s science also helps find solutions to other major challenges such as ensuring safe and sustainable food and water supplies, the consequences of a changing climate, and conserving biodiversity.
Moredun has extensive Home Office Licensed laboratory and animal facilities which underpin our research. MRI laboratories are equipped to handle a broad range of livestock pathogens including bacteria, viruses and parasites. On-site animal accommodation houses all species of livestock and includes a high containment facility to allow research in small and large animals on specified pathogens up to Containment Level 3. MRI’s facilities are staffed by highly trained and dedicated individuals including experienced veterinarians, who provide expert animal care and maintenance.
