Organization profile

Organisation profile

Established in 2007, Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance (SULSA) is a research pooling partnership between the Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St Andrews and Strathclyde that is supported by the Scottish Funding Council.

SULSA aims to maintain and advance Scotland’s global position in the Life Sciences by recruiting international research leaders and funding world-class research facilities. SULSA also connects researchers across Scotland through events and collaborative PhD studentships.

SULSA’s initial investments are focused in three broad interrelated research themes: cell biology, systems biology and translational biology.
