About us

Welcome to EPIC Scotland (Epidemiology, Population health and Infectious disease Control), an ambitious animal health consortium project at the forefront of research on animal disease outbreaks, with a specific focus on their impacts on Scotland's livestock. Our comprehensive research spans exotic and emerging diseases affecting cattle, sheep, pigs, and poultry. Based in Scotland, EPIC brings together diverse expertise under one umbrella and employs a multi-disciplinary approach that integrates statistics, veterinary epidemiology, mathematical modeling, economics, molecular biology, and social sciences. Funded by the Scottish Government, EPIC collaborates closely with other centers of expertise contributing to a holistic approach to safeguard the welfare of Scotland's livestock industry and stakeholders.
