The Large Animal Research and Imaging Facility (LARIF), co-funded by the University of Edinburgh and Innovate UK through the Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL), will open in early 2020 on the Easter Bush campus. The new facility offers exciting opportunities for research using medical imaging technologies (including CT, 3T MRI) in large animals, including pigs, sheep, cattle and horses, with potential applications in biomedical and clinical sciences.

To capitalise on the new facilities available through LARIF, this one-day workshop aims to bring together scientists and clinicians from different academic disciplines and departments, who are interested in using large animal models for biomedical research, with a particular focus on application of medical imaging technologies. The objective is to foster new collaborations and partnerships resulting in innovative projects utilising the unique LARIF facilities.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Tom Wishart (Roslin Institute) - "Why use large animals to model neurodegenerative conditions?"
  • Alistair Lawrence (SRUC) – “Pigs as a model for studying neuroimmune interactions”
  • Eddie Clutton (R(D)SVS) - "Large Animal Critical Care in Translational Research"
  • Megan Holmes (Centre for Cardiovascular Sciences) - “Imaging a life of stress: Rodent studies from development to old age”
  • Adam Marshall (NHS Lothian) - "Large animal models in translational respiratory research"

Keynote address:

  • Rodney Johnson, University of Illinois - “Neuroimaging in domestic pigs: An approach to assess developmental origins of decreased resilience”
Registration is open at the link below until 25 September 2019.
