Leicesterís Institute for Lung Health launches a consultancy activity aimed at providing a training and advisory service to the pharmaceutical industry

ILH Consulting was launched this week to provide advisory and training services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and medical equipment manufacturers.

The consultancy comprises many of Leicesterís leading respiratory scientists, academics and healthcare professionals who are at the forefront of research and development. ILH Consulting aims to provide expert advice to a range of companies currently with an interest in the field of respiratory medicine or perhaps considering moving into this area. It also assists in the development of research programmes, the implementation of research projects and provides educational training.

The director of ILH Consulting, Professor Andrew Wardlaw, Professor of Respiratory Medicine at the University of Leicester, said:

"The profile of respiratory research in Leicester has recently been enhanced as a result of the internationally recognised research we are undertaking. The launch of our consultancy service, underlines the strength we have in this area. As a result we hope to be able to forge mutually beneficial working relationships with the pharmaceutical industry and bridge the gap that can exist between industry and academia.Ē

Our consultants have extensive experience, knowledge and contacts within academia, industry and throughout the NHS, with expertise in all aspects of discovery, development and training enabling us to provide our clients with a fast, efficient and reliable service. By launching ILH Consulting we are bringing this expertise together into an identifiable network and ensuring Leicester remains at the forefront of respiratory research.

If you require any further details, please contact Xan Whitfield-Grace, ILH Co-ordinator on 0116 2502581, email on or visit the website at

The Institute for Lung Health is part of the University of Leicester and the University Hospital of Leicester NHS Trust.
