Research and Innovation


The University of Exeter has developed a range of shared Research Facilities that provide our research & training communities and commercial clients with access to specialised technologies and expertise.  In so doing, our facilities provide essential infrastructure that is integral to the University’s internationally renowned research and training. They provide a vital platform for the cross faculty, cross theme and interdisciplinary working which underpins our excellence in research and education. Facilitating world-class research and training is the primary purpose of these facilities.

Biological Service Units

Our Biological Service Units support the small but vital number of animal research projects at the university. We are committed to the highest level of animal welfare and the 3Rs principles: Replacement, Reduction, Refinement.
