Dr Jon Brown
Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience
"One of my key motivations behind moving to Exeter was the intensive focus on translational neuroscience research, spanning not only biomedical and genetic approaches but also more applied health services research.
There is a strong strategic institutional focus on key research areas such as dementia. This has really helped increase my collaborative network and has led to some extremely interesting research projects and high profile publications."
Dr Kate Ellacott
"I was originally attracted to apply to Exeter due to its location - the South West of England is beautiful and the quality of life is excellent. When I started looking into the University in more detail I was impressed by the quality of research and the fact that the University is committed to investing in the future growth in STEMM research.
Since joining the University I have valued the collaborative atmosphere, inclusiveness and emphasis on a family-friendly working policies."
Professor Jonathan Mill
"It's really exciting to be part of a new and expanding institution that has real ambition to be a top-ranked research centre. I have been amazed by the support given to young academics - it's a really nurturing and collaborative environment and this has allowed my group to flourish. The facilities for biomedical genetics research are state-of-the-art, and there are exciting plans to invest in new technologies.
And of course, Devon is a fantastic place to live and work…even when it rains."
Professor Lora Fleming
Director of the European Centre for Environment and Human Health - Truro Campus
"After over 20 years working in the US, I came to Exeter because uniquely environment and human health is a major focus of research and training. I learn new things every day and interact with very smart, creative and engaged students and colleagues who care about the environment and health.
We have built a truly interdisciplinary research centre with collaborations across the University, as well as nationally and internationally."
