From locally to globally, the University of Exeter Medical School makes a difference to the lives and health of millions of people. With particular expertise in areas such as neonatal diabetes, dementia care and prevention, cancer diagnosis, neuroscience and mental health, our research is characterised by ‘embedded care’.
This means that instead of the traditional model of pure scientific research; at Exeter research is initiated by a clinical question, takes place in a clinical setting and is measured by its clinical outcome. This means that research can be quickly adopted into practice. With the increasing pressures on the NHS and healthcare provision worldwide, our approach has the potential to revolutionise patient care.
