We are a leading specialist clinical research facility working with the pharmaceutical industry to identify potential new treatments for conditions such as:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Cough
  • COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Hypertension
  • Nasal Polyps
  • Psoriasis/ Eczema/ Dermatitis
  • Thyroid (Graves’ Disease)
  • (LAM) Lymphangioleiomyomatosis
  • IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis)


For volunteers who wish to participate in research but do not want to take a drug, we do non-drug studies (academic team)

Whilst developing our activity in other therapeutic areas, we also conduct early phase clinical trials which we require Healthy Volunteers.

The wellbeing of our volunteers is always our first priority and we have an outstanding reputation within the industry for performing high quality clinical research complying with strict clinical trial legislation. We have successfully conducted over 360 clinical trials, recruiting in excess of 10,000 volunteers and this number continues to grow.

Established in 1994, we are majority owned by the North West Lung Centre Charity and due to the unique way that we operate, all profits generated by us are then reinvested into the research of future treatments for respiratory diseases

We are located in our own purpose built state of the art facility on the grounds of Wythenshawe Hospital and employ a team of dedicated medical professionals who are committed to excellence.

The Medicines Evaluation Unit (MEU) was established and founded in 1994 by the late Dr Steve Langley and is a joint venture with the University Hospitals of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust.

A leading specialist clinical research facility working with the pharmaceutical industry to identify potential new treatments for conditions such as Asthma, Bronchitis and Emphysema and now many more therapeutic areas.

We at the MEU want to deliver rewarding research to improve clinical care whilst also rewarding our volunteers for their continued support.
