The University of Exeter will pioneer new methods for managing and treating chronic health conditions at a ground-breaking new maths-based research centre, it has been announced.
The new centre, led by Professor John Terry from the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, aims to revolutionise the diagnosis and prognosis of a range of common chronic health conditions.
The Centre is one of five across the UK launched by Life Sciences Minister George Freeman today (16 December) and which will receive part of a £10 million total investment by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
The centres will enable scientists to work closely with healthcare planners, clinicians, policy makers and industry partners to deliver high quality, multidisciplinary research that will help overcome some of the big challenges facing the NHS. It will be housed jointly with the Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis within the University's RILD Building.
