Dr Cameron Brown

Senior Lecturer

Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences


Personal statement

Cameron is a Senior Lecturer for the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Specialising in the development of digital design tools and strategies for pharmaceutical manufacturing. His current research is focused on the application of generative and deep learning approaches to the design of pharmaceutical equipment, processes, and products. A co-investigator for the CMAC Future Research Hub, ARTICULAR, and Digital Design and Manufacturing of Amorphous Pharmaceuticals (DDMAP) projects. As part of the GlaxoSmithKline, Nottingham University and University of Strathclyde Prosperity Partnership for a Healthier Nation, he also leads the University of Strathclyde team in the digital manufacturing of novel pharmaceutical processing equipment. A wealth of experience in knowledge exchange and translation of research to industry has resulted in Cameron being the academic lead for a knowledge transfer partnership with Siemens Process Systems Enterprise Ltd. He can be reached at cameron.brown.100(at)strath.ac.uk or on Twitter @CameronBrown42.
