At some point in our lives most of us will need to take a tablet or medicine but did you realise that it can take up to 15 years and cost billions of pounds to develop?

ICON Development Solutions’ Clinical Research Unit in Manchester (formerly Medeval) conducts research for all the major pharmaceutical companies to help them get their medicines to market and ultimately help treat millions of people across the world.

In order to be able to conduct their research they rely on healthy people like you to volunteer and help them by taking part in their extensive studies. Forget any pre-conceived ideas that you may have about clinical research - yes you will be taking part in a scientifically designed and controlled study and you will be required to give blood samples and have your blood pressure monitored but the atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed with recreational facilities including a pool table, Playstation, Sky TV and internet access.

You will be paid for your time and convenience between £270 and £3000.
