The Genomics Laboratory at the Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust is at the forefront of NHS Genomic Medicine, providing state-of-the-art diagnostic testing that utilises specialist gene panel, exome and genome analyses to make diagnoses for the benefit of families with rare diseases across the UK and beyond. The Exeter and Bristol Laboratories are working in partnership as the South West Genomic Laboratory Hub, with the Exeter Laboratory focused on specialist endocrine services and exome/genome analysis for rare diseases.

Rapid translation of research to improved diagnostic services is facilitated by sharing purpose-built modern office and lab spaces with the University of Exeter Medical School genomics teams, including the world-leading monogenic diabetes researchers led by Professors Sian Ellard and Andrew Hattersley. Further details of the diagnostic service and research interests can be found on our websites.
