The Living Systems Institute (LSI) seeks innovative and sustainable partnerships with industry. We provide industry with access to expert researchers including biologists, physicists, engineers and mathematicians, working with cutting-edge technologies to solve the most complex biological problems.
The LSI is a state-of-the-art biomedical and translational research facility that co-locates researchers from basic science through to clinical research. A major focus is on understanding the fundamental mechanisms of disease and bridging the gap to clinical translation.
With thirty research groups drawn from diverse fields of expertise, the LSI provides a truly interdisciplinary environment to foster breakthroughs in understanding and controlling biological systems.
The LSI is a purpose-designed institute and houses specialist facilities and capabilities, available for use by external partners through collaboration with LSI academics or on a service basis:
University of Exeter is a scientific hub for the region and is open for collaboration, contract research, facilities access, trialling interventions and consultancy. Whether examining genetic pathways, screening for novel drug-targets, creating diagnostic or digital tools, or undertaking clinical trials for drugs or medical devices, the University strives to develop strategic partnerships for specific projects, indications and technologies across a number of sectors.
To support collaboration with industry, the LSI hosts the Translational Research Exchange @ Exeter (TREE), including a dedicated Industrial Research Team whose goals are:
- To enable the translation of biomedical research toward real-world use and/or its commercialisation.
- To develop industry relationships whereby large corporate/SME’s can access the University’s expertise and capabilities.
