About Research and Innovation at Exeter

As a Russell Group University our research makes a difference across the world. We believe in breaking down traditional barriers between academic disciplines so the bigger problems of the 21st Century can be considered from human as well as physical perspectives. We are constantly seeking new ways to engage with partners to build productive relationships that tackle some of the fundamental issues facing humankind.

We study microbes across all scales, from the sub-cellular to entire communities and seamlessly integrate 'blue skies' and applied research. Our approaches range from state-of-the-art sequencing and imaging technologies to ecological modelling.
