What is SULSA?
Scottish Universities Life Science Alliance (SULSA) is a strategic alliance between twelve Scottish Universities that aims to enhance Scotland’s vibrant life sciences research community by improving opportunities for collaboration, innovation, funding and translational research. In doing so, we week to increase the level of high-quality research and improve Scotland’s global reputation in the life sciences.
Background to the SULSA One Health Workshop on 27 February:
In October 2023, SULSA hosted the Medical Research Council Regional meeting where One Health emerged as a theme in which SULSA member universities have substantial strengths. This workshop is being hosted by The University of the Highlands and Islands in response to this, to bring SULSA member universities together (across disciplines) with a view to actively influence UKRI Councils and facilitate a rapid response to relevant grant calls.
This workshop aims to:
- To bring together senior researchers with an interest in One Health in order to determine the breadth and depth of expertise across Scotland
- To discuss the strategic approach to UKRI, including influencing and proposal of specific calls that meet Scotland’s expertise
- To identify consortium members and potential lead institutions/individuals within specific sub-themes of One Health
- To plan the next steps with respect to developing research proposals and routes of engagement with Research Councils to help steer calls towards our strengths
Sub-themes for the meeting have been predetermined through a survey of the SULSA network and are listed below. Please select which sub-theme you are interested in on registration:
Infectious Disease Control – spread of virus/pathogens and ways to understand and mitigate this, looking at animal and human health.
Remote monitoring and digital health - innovations that are improving access to healthcare and reducing carbon footprint, focused on human health.
Food security - looking at agriculture and aquaculture.
Pollutants in water - looking at impacts of humans on the environment and vice versa.
