Medex organises a major research expedition every 4 or 5 years. We have just completed our fourth research expedition to Nepal, and we are currently planning an expedition for 2012. Each expedition includes a very wide range of projects, and often the findings are widely broadcast in the academic press. All research is conducted through Medical Expeditions which is a charity supported by Medex. Established in 1992 Medical Expeditions has acquired an internationally respected reputation for its research and educational work. Unlike many similar research groups Medical Expeditions specialises in researching on relatively large sample groups over a long period of time. A typical expedition is comprised of 75 members exposed to altitude for 6 weeks.
