The University of Exeter's cutting-edge research in data science and artificial intelligence is transforming healthcare. With a focus on improving health outcomes, our expert teams are developing innovative AI-driven solutions for predicting and preventing diseases, personalizing treatment plans, and improving patient care.
If you're looking to collaborate with a forward-thinking partner who can help solve your digital health needs, the University of Exeter is the ideal choice.
Our areas of expertise
Advances in genomic sequencing and medical imaging bring an unprecedented opportunity to understand how diseases develop. Our experts process complex data into valuable insights and offer training on statistical methods, to maximise the information gained from this technology.
At the University of Exeter, we support ambitious research which harnesses data science and AI to tackle public health challenges and neglected diseases. Our experts can help you unlock powerful technologies and insights with the potential to inform a new era of precision medicine.
Our experts can provide healthcare modelling and visualisation for population-based approaches to health, as well as training in this area. We are also home to leading health economics researchers, who can inform the design, evaluation and delivery of health interventions.
