The Scottish Universities Life Science Alliance (SULSA) supports and enhances research and innovation excellence in Scotland’s life science sector, ensuring Scotland is recognised globally as a destination for leading life sciences research and development. SULSA strives to enhance Scotland’s vibrant life sciences research community by improving opportunities for cross-cutting collaboration, inward investment, lifelong learning and translational research.  


By investing in our talent, that enable research and innovation to happen, we make Scotland globally competitive, the place to come for Life Science Research.

By driving strategic collaboration across disciplines, sectors and borders we support economic recovery and help build Scotland back better.

By supporting translational and transformative research we benefit our society and our environment to build a better future.

By breaking down barriers we progress research culture and foster an inclusive environment without limits.

In 2021, we have intensified our effort around skills provision and training for our researchers but also to the wider talent pipeline. Into the future, we hope to support more streamlined and effective processes for training and career development of our talented workforce within the life science sector, through better connectivity across the education ecosystem.
