The Moredun Group is a collective name for four collaborative organisations at the forefront of research into diseases which can affect the health and welfare of livestock.
· The Moredun Foundation is a registered charity supporting livestock health and welfare through research and education. The Foundation governs the work of the Moredun group.
· Moredun Research Institute conducts world-class scientific research to improve livestock health and welfare through the prevention and control of infectious diseases.
· Moredun Scientific. The commercial arm of the Moredun group, Moredun Scientific is a contract research organisation specialising in animal health and biosafety testing of biopharmaceuticals enabling companies to develop, register and commercialise their products.
· Pentlands Science Park (PSP). The home of the Moredun Group and over 20 commercial companies. PSP provides property and management services including conference facilities.
The Moredun Group also relies on members whose subscriptions help them to carry out heir education and outreach programmes.
A new website design and build would need to take into account the many and varied facets of the Moredun Group. Because of this it was decided to create two separate websites; one for the group and the four sub-organisations, and the other for memberships. Each site would contain a link to the other. The Moredun Group website would be content rich and the Member Portal would include an online shop and a page for donations.
