Across four centuries, Edinburgh has been the birthplace of many innovations, including anaesthesia, a genetically engineered vaccine for Hepatitis B, the first cloned animal and the bionic finger. This inspiring tradition continues to thrive and the city region boasts many centres of excellence which attract the keenest and most creative minds.
Dolly the sheep, the first cloned animal to be created from an adult cell, is now be on display at the National Museum of Scotland.
Our featured case studies provide a brief introduction to who or what may be the next big thing. We hope you find these both interesting and encouraging. New case studies will be added regularly so please bookmark this page and visit again.
Nowhere in the world can pretend to be Edinburgh’s equal for medicine.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)
