Roslin Technologies offer opportunities for investors looking to capitalise on the growing demand for food and agricultural products.
Formed as a joint venture between the University of Edinburgh, two external investors and commercialisation partners with strong global industry networks and a track record of successful commercialisation in animal agriculture; Roslin Technologies aims to commercialise the intellectual property and know-how of The Roslin Institute and The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, the UK’s leading vet school, revolutionising agricultural productivity on a global scale through ground-breaking science.
Among the first technologies planned for commercialisation is a low-cost manufacturing system to produce therapeutic proteins in chicken eggs, allowing drug discovery for diseases; methods for biobanking poultry germplasm to preserve genetic diversity for future generations; and novel vaccines and diagnostics for veterinary markets to enhance animal welfare.
