South Cloisters

The newly refurbished South Cloisters building on the St Luke’s Campus in Exeter is home to the Medical School’s world-leading Institute of Health Research and also the Medical Imaging programme, which is routinely named as the best of its kind in the country.

Many of the researchers based in the building are part of the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care South West Peninsula (PenCLAHRC), a £10 million partnership which spans Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, encompassing universities in the South West and the NHS.

Under the directorship of Professor Stuart Logan, PenCLAHRC supports research with direct impact on patients' health and on improvements to the way in which NHS care is delivered.

We have invested heavily in a range of new facilities to create a hub with a strong emphasis on health and wellbeing. This new building is bringing together researchers and educators in high-quality surroundings, fostering collaboration and partnerships and strengthening our vibrant base at St Luke’s.
