Who are memoresearch?
the people behind the studies

Tom and Isla

Led by Prof. Tom MacDonald and Prof. Isla Mackenzie, MEMO Research has delivered high quality research for over 20 years with two key themes: observational studies and clinical trials. Early on, MEMO developed ways to study prescribing in primary care, allowing a range of studies into the safety of commonly prescribed drugs. Since that time, we have undertaken clinical trials to further understand the safety and use of medicines. Experience of many types of research helps us to continue innovating and delivering studies which can improve healthcare globally.

High quality research relies on high quality people. As our research interests and opportunities have broadened, our team has expanded to include a range of specialists with wide-ranging skills. We also have broad research and clinical interests, and have collaborated with researchers from down the corridor and the other side of the world. By collaboration and dedication our research goes from strength to strength.

Our publications

expanding knowledge

As clinical academics, our work can be influential in several ways. As individuals and as a group we have contributed to pieces of work of many types, including textbooks, although perhaps the most important products of our research are publications in peer-reviewed research journals. We publish widely on a range of research topics in high-impact journals.
