Introduction from Professor Nick Talbot FRS

I would like to welcome you all to our Living Systems Institute (LSI). The LSI represents a milestone in Exeter’s history and is the culmination of a bold and ambitious investment programme by our governing body of over £340m in STEMM subjects in skills, people and facilities in the last ten years.

The LSI will enable our researchers, across mathematics, biology, evolutionary genetics, biochemistry, and physics to work in combination to generate new knowledge. I am extremely proud that the LSI is led by our inaugural Director, Professor Philip Ingham FRS. His world leading research credentials and leadership abilities will help us understand the complex, interconnected and challenging natural world and lead us to a greater understanding of biological processes and diseases.
