About Us

The Medicines Monitoring Unit (MEMO) based at Ninewells Hospital and Medical School is a research unit that aims to improve the safe and effective use of medicines in patients. MEMO performs randomised controlled clinical trials and pharmacoepidemiological research covering several different areas of medicine.

Under the leadership of Prof Tom MacDonald, Professor of Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacoepidemiology, our team of physicians, research nurses, statisticians, programmers and administrative staff liaise closely with general practitioners and specialists to investigate important clinical questions relating to drug safety and efficacy. Our emphasis is on high quality research leading to outcomes that guide patient management.

To get a better understanding of what MEMO wants to achieve check out the videos of Professor Tom MacDonald speaking at The Royal Society of Arts.
