BioSS consultancy & collaboration information for SRUC

Various BioSS staff work with SRUC researchers to provide general consultancy support and collaboration depending on science application area and/or location. In some circumstances you may be referred to other BioSS staff to benefit from their specialised quantitative skills or experience in particular application areas. More detailed information is detailed below, including named BioSS contacts for RESAS Strategic Research Programme projects.


BioSS are running two training courses at SRUC in Edinburgh: 4-5 April Experimental Design & ANOVA and 13-14 April Mixed Models. Please click here to book on on of these courses. 

Consultancy & Collaboration

Please contact appropriate BioSS staff by email (see below) with a brief explanation of your requirements including funding. They will either deal with the query themselves or they may pass you to another member of BioSS staff with availability and the quantitative skills required or familiarity with your application area.

For exclusively RESAS Strategic Research Programme work there is no charge at the point of contact. For other work we need to be costed explicitly, but please do contact us for initial discussions about your interests. There is no charge for this.
