Research Innovation Learning and Development
The RILD Building
The IBEx team is situated on the 4th floor of the state-of-the-art Research, Innovation, Learning and Development (RILD) building, which is a partnership between the University of Exeter Medical School and the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust (RD&E). Part-funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Wolfson Foundation, the building is innovative in every way, enhancing collaborations between the two organisations.
The building streamlines the medical research process. Patient studies, laboratory work and the education of health care professionals all occur under one roof, providing a forum for students, researchers and clinicians to come together and ensure that medical research is relevant to the needs of patients.
