The Euan MacDonald Centre

The Euan MacDonald Centre (EMC) at the University of Edinburgh is a “centre without walls” of 30 researchers across Scotland that seeks to improve the lives of patients living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) through fundamental discovery research as well as a growing portfolio of patient-centred research projects.

EMC approached LTS 2013 Q3 to redesign their public facing website, a static HTML build. Graphics Lab (Stuart Brett) worked closely with Rebecca Devon, Denise Cranley and Euan MacDonald to produce new visuals. The e-learning team then rapidly developed (5 developers over 2 days) a bespoke WordPress theme featuring a responsive web design (RWD). This very quickly gave the EMC team an easy-to-use content management system (CMS) with improved control over their publishing.

The new WordPress site had its public launch on the 29th of October 2013.
